I do remember my mom getting a cutting board, out of pine, shaped like a pig, from each of my brothers as their final project in shop one year. I had to sew a laundry bag..which I still have...don't know what happened to those pig cutting boards...firewood?

Was there some requirement that all shop classes make pig shaped cutting boards? I remember my brothers bringing them home. I threw one out when I cleaned out my grandmother's house after she passed. Our current shop teacher is stuck on apples- apple cutting boards & apple bookshelves.

Maybe the schools got a deal on the template?

I'm seething! The apartment management has neglected to get out the monthly schedule on time, again. Today is supposed to be a trip to Walmart, but Thursdays the trip can be at 10 AM or Noon.

I went to ask which and the gal was waving me away from her door because she's busy. I finally had to force the issue to ask her what time so I could be ready.

When I asked previously why they couldn't get the schedules out on time, she said that sometimes she hadn't gotten confirmation for one of the "events".

These "events" are usually some company who wants to offer services that can get them Medicare dollars.

My take is that if they can't be bothered confirming on time, then they can wait until next month.

Their take is that it is okay to inconvenience 300-400 residents instead!

Z, I don't blame you for being upset. This may be a burden to your office manager, and a insignificant bonus for the companies, but it is far more important to you and other residents. I am sure it means the difference between getting out and not getting out to many.

Is there someone above this woman in the office you can complain too?

I agree with LPB. Suggest to someone higher up that they print out the schedules with what they know, and write "pending" for anything that hasn't been confirmed, then print out a second schedule when they know.
