I am a programmer. That's why I'm receiving a paycheck. I sit alone in a small cubicle and do my work. I don't do desktop support and I'm not interested in working closely with users. So my boss says to me today that I am being signed up for a FIVE day course in..... Microsoft OUTLOOK. You heard right. A five day course learning how to email. And the purpose of this? So I can teach classes to everyone at my job how to use Outlook. Am I a teacher? Nope. Am I a desktop support person? Nope. Do I want to waste my time and go through the stress of doing this? F-no. So I'm going to start looking for another job. I know some of you might say, "appreciate your job, and do anything you have to for the money." Well I worked very hard to be hired as a programmer, and the thought of doing these presentations causes me great stress and anxiety. What do you guys think? If you're a programmer like me, what would you do?
