What a PITA! Why? Why is it this way now?

That's insane.

Meanwhile, I can't pass up an opportunity to post a photo of Chris O'Dowd

They fixed it back after I whined, but they also decided to overhaul the printed form so it's virtually unreadable.

The old form was a boring old two-column table in Times Roman 14.

The new one has the college logo and boxes that come out of nowhere, no lines around the table and the columns are centred, not left aligned, so the whole thing is just a dog's breakfast.

I'm asking them to fix it back to the way it was.

I can hear my mom rolling her eyes and saying "the high-priced help...".

I'm now a Business Analyst in software development - it's a lot crazier than I expected!
