Dilbert: Out online budget approval system isn't working. There's a process for making changes to the system, but I don't know it.
I could take a class to learn the process, but there's also a process for approving classes.
I could learn the process for approving classes, but I'd still need approval for a budget variance to take the class.
And I can't get that because the online budget approval system is broken.
I can't even have this conversation because it will make me charge too much of my engineering time to administrative overhead.
So I'll go sit in my cubicle and pretend to be thinking about a billable project. It looks like I'll be exaggerating my accomplishments again this year.
