I have been working in government contracting for far too long. It has been about 8 years now, and it is just getting weird. Today, a mass email was sent out about “The Day of Obligation”.
Now, as an atheist, I am not going to even go into if using government email to promote a religious function is proper. I don’t agree with it, but hey, that’s what the delete button is for. I have a coworker who is also an atheist who actually gets verbally upset when it happens. The “Is this a joke?” statement kind of tells that story. But much like when there is something on TV I don’t like, I have the ability to ignore this email.
However, today, I actually laughed out loud. I read that, and it took me a minute to realize that they are not talking about a day when Contracting obligates a lot of documents. That would have been September 30th. No, and I am a little embarrassed to say that it took me a few moments to pick up on that fact. Must be getting old.
