The Concensus

For all those people who are talking about mail in ballots … Chew on this for a bit.

Before COVID, I signed up to work on the 2020 Census.  I’m embarrassed to say, until this year, I had no idea of the significance of the census; what the numbers translate to, etc.  I know enough now to know how important it is. And I could use a job.

COVID delayed the process of EVERYTHING.  That’s no newsflash.  But, it is about to get back on track.  I was notified by email that the training was being scheduled and could I contact them to select a date.  Sadly, I found this email in my SPAM folder about two weeks after it was sent.  I reached out when I saw it and scheduled training for August 5th at 10:30 am.  This was a few weeks ago.  I received a phone call about one week after scheduling, asking me if I would like to schedule my training.  Huh?  I’m scheduled, I insisted and told the man the date, time and location.  “Well, you’re not listed here – but I can put you in at that time.”  Okay.

Yesterday, I received an email from a different person from the Census bureau confirming my training on August 4th at 9:30 am.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? 

This is the census bureau!

My next question is – will we be using common core math?

Oh My God!!!
