Ridiculcy: noun. Policies that make no sense but you must abide by them anyway.
Where I live, the school year is winding down to its last few days. With the end in sight, the principal of our school asked us to participate in the brand-new, shiny, incredibly awesome "Online Registration" for the upcoming year. Seems simple enough. Online registration=not having to hand carry the papers to the school. How awesome is that?
So, after following the trail of links you have to follow to get to the fabled registration form, I found out something...confusing. To me, and I'm sure to you, "online registration" means just that. Registering online. Turns out that is not this school's definition of the term. Then what is their definition, you may ask.
Are you ready for this?
According to this school, "online registration" is being able to download the form to print it out at home and bring it to school, as opposed to having to pick up a form at the school.
Last time I checked, that's not what that meant...
