So, I made arrangements to go, and told Grace that my sister wanted to come, if there was enough space. She said "that should be fine", so I texted my sister to tell her the times and stuff, and she said she’d be able to take me and bring me back. Great!
However… just as I was about to leave the class, Grace said that I COULDN’T go, because I hadn’t returned the form or something. Which is really stupid… why would I need to return a form when she could just reserve places for me there and then? So, I cancelled the arrangements, and I was extremely annoyed… but I was quite quiet about it.
Today, I found a message on the voicemail that I must’ve missed that was left yesterday at about 9:00PM. It was from someone from NEW College about the awards evening (probably to say that I can now go), and asking me if I could ring in the morning. I find this REALLY fecking annoying, and really damned rude!
Basically, they’ve said, "Oh, you can come if you want to… oh no, you’ve REALLY gotta come, it’s SO IMPORTANT! Oh, now you can’t come, sorry. Wait, no, sorry, you CAN come now…" Damn it, I wouldn’t get pushed around this many times even if I was in a freaking pinball machine! And I bet that if I decided to phone them now, they’d put the icing on the cake and say "Oh, sorry, no, that was a mistake, you can’t actually come."
King organisation skillz by NEW College(!) They fail at organising units, they fail at making units, (one of the units was CHANGED midway through, and only people that hadn’t passed them had to do the unit again, which I find extremely shit) they fail at computing, they fail at organising awards evenings… basically, NEW College fails, a lot.
So… I don’t reckon I’ll be at the awards evening after all… although my sister is (annoyingly) phoning them right now for me… even though I specifically said "I’m not going", because they’ve had their chance to get me there. If they wanted me to think they were serious about it, and that it truly WAS important… they wouldn’t have changed their minds so many times by now!
110% focus on passing the course with at least DDM mark, now… I’d rather not have to go back there and redo the course.
