I was wracking my brains this morning for a good TMI post, but I decided to go with JEI (Just Enough Information) Thursday.
I was at our county’s government office yesterday, trying to get some permits approved for new after school programs. Have I mentioned I work for my county’s school system? Of course, I end up waiting in 3 different lines to talk to 5 different people, eventually leaving with 2 additional forms that need to be filled out and approved before the county can grant itself permission to run after school care programs in buildings not only built by the county itself and run by county employees, but previously inspected by county agencies. Ah, bureaucracy, how I love you.
Anyway, I got to leave work early and I picked up some sweet pamphlets while I was waiting in the Environmental Health Department line.
So, without further ado, I bring you RATS…Some Facts.
And inside…(emphasis my own)
