I got my application in on time. Thirty minutes early even. It was a surprisingly difficult thing to do. I expected when I started to have everything ready sometime on Monday. Since I was told that they probably wouldn't even start calling people to set up interviews for at least two weeks it is time to start looking other places. I think I will take a day, or two off from job searching to take care of some things that I didn't bother with at all since Friday. It will probably make me feel a bit guilty to not be working on the job search, but if I don't take some sort of breather I will feel like I didn't get any kind of reward for my work. Even thought I might get a job for my work. It all feels like gambling. I usually avoid any kind of gamble, and this time I don't even know the odds.
ATT forgot to disconnect phone service at the place I used to live. I was supposed to be disconnected almost 2 months ago. They didn't discover their mistake until I called to ask why I got 2 bills that said do not pay on them. Customer service was very nice to me, and apologized for accidentally giving me free service. I was assured that they would fix their mistake, and that I would not be billed with statements that credit my account. Their hold music is much more relaxing and pleasant than the music I had to listen to all the time at DirecTV.
PCC (http://www.pcc.edu/ for people not familiar with the area) on the other hand treated me like crap. I was billed for a parking permit that was useless because they oversold their parking by about 10000 spaces. I drove around the parking lot for an hour and a half without finding a space. That was actually one of the deciding reasons for dropping out. There is an overwhelming feeling that nobody at that place cares about any student at all. I was also billed for a locker that didn't work. The locker would open without entering a combo. The locker fee was nonrefundable under any circumstances she told me. I could have gotten my money back for the parking permit. BUT to return the parking permit I would have had to find a parking space so that I could actually get to the place I would return the permit, AND I would then be without a permit when I went in to return the one I had. Thus I would have to buy a temporary permit. I guess you have to pay for a more expensive school if you want anybody to care about you.
Now that I am done ranting I think I am going to go read something educational like "The C++ Programing Language Special Edition", or my illustrated copy of "Kama Sutra".
