Jogi: I knew when we got this government Contract that it would be a Two-edged sword.
Deborah: How so?
Jogi: I’m grateful for the work, but having To jump through hoops of the government’s Bureaucracy has me Pulling my hair out.
Deborah: What’s wrong now?
Jogi: You know that all of our documents have to be submitted In triplicate. I anticipated that and had done everything To the letter, or so I thought.
Deborah: I know. I helped you prepare those documents. What’s the problem?
Jogi: The documents were sent back to us because they say we didn’t follow some of the reporting regulations. But the Verbiage in the regulations is so convoluted that I had To interpret them To the best of my ability. I thought I had done everything right.
Deborah: Didn’t they tell you what they thought was done wrong when they returned the documents?
Jogi: All I got was a Form letter with no specifics.
Deborah: I suggest calling the office responsible for reviewing the documents and asking someone there.
Jogi: You don’t think I’ve tried? Every time I think I have the right department and leave a voicemail message, either I don’t Hear back or I get Palmed off on another office. I can’t get a Straight answer to any of my questions. I never expected this much Red tape.
Deborah: So I see what you mean about that two-edged sword.
Jogi: I can think of one good use for that Sword right now – To put me out of my misery!
