Okay, I understand why ICSD needs students’ medical information for field trips in the incredibly unlikely event something goes wrong. What I don’t understand is how they manage to lose the medical forms after every single field trip. Two field trips about a week apart? Two medical forms—long and tedious to fill out, and completely redundant. They must accumulate, but are never used again. It wouldn’t be terribly surprising if ICSD hired someone to make sure the medical forms for each field trip got lost promptly.
Of course, the fact of the matter is that there are a great number of field trips, and since no one is perfect, it stands to reason that some poor soul in ICSD must have at some point forgotten to lose the medical forms. Considering how adamant ICSD is in making students submit new medical forms, I can only speculate as to the horrible demise of this ill-fated employee. “You forgot to lose the medical forms!” roars the Director of Bureaucratic Inefficiency. “Are you trying to subvert us? Assistant Director, fetch me the branding iron! Mwahahaha! Afterwards, you’ll copy your phone number 10,000 times!” ICSD doesn’t have enough money to pay its teachers well, so why pay someone to lose perfectly good paperwork that could be reused?
Now I have to congratulate the Athletics Department, because they’ve consistently resisted the incursions of the Department of Bureaucratic Inefficiency. Sometimes, late at night, members of the Department of Bureaucratic Inefficiency try to take over the Athletics Department, quietly cackling as they sneak up to the doors of the Athletic Office. But they’re always met with fierce resistance: “You won’t ruin athletics for ICSD kids!” screams the Athletics Director as she fends off the invaders with well-placed baseball-bat swings. “Out! Out!” And out they go, bloody and bruised.
