Amelia Earhart was a childhood hero of mine. Of course by childhood, I refer to a period of time that stretched well into my early twenties...but I'm growing up now.

The University of Supposed Comptence

At a university that is allegedly concerned with conserving costs and manpower, I found out today that, apparently, multiple people are required to change a light bulb. Today Facilities Management (how’s that for a euphemism for “handymen”) sent two “associates” over to check out our burnt out light bulb situation (without light bulbs, mind you) and one more came an hour later to actually change the bulb.

Oh well, at least they weren't trumpet players, because then at least 7 more people would have shown up to say how much better they could have done the job.
