This struck me on the way home, so I'm sharing... About 70-90% of the people who work in my happy department of hell can't correctly identify what they do. What does that mean? It means that our one and only product consists of a three letter acronym. The people who generate these modern marvels of acronymity continually and unflinchingly spit out the word for which the last latter stands. Along the lines of "ATM Machine", they have absolutely no idea how amazingly stupid they make this little slice of the government sound. And now, since the current batch of instructors warmly embrace the ignorance and gladly, without hesitation, tell the new crop of people to say it incorrectly... I must get out before I go mad.
