An Exciting Day with CPA's

I am helping my mom with a conference for CPA's seeking continuing education today and tomorrow. I had to get up at the butt crack of 0430 this morning to get here by 6. While sitting at the sign in table and conversing with some of the attendees, here is what I have observed:

  • Like college students, they like to take as many breaks as they can to get out of listening to a lecture.

  • They are never happy….one is too hot, then they're cold, then hot

  • They are ALWAYS on their cell phone…usually having something to do with checks getting screwed up.

  • They are like anyone in school, or church for that matter…they don't like to sit up front.

  • Although they are adults, they do not follow directions well. How hard is it to pass around a sign in sheet??

  • Even in a group of upstanding adults…there is still that one creepy dirty old man who asks you to sit on his lap.

  • They have the hardest time finding their name in an alphabetical list…they work with numbers after all.

  • Even in a group of accountants you have your feminists, UGH!!

So, despite being tired, it was a pretty interesting day, I wonder what tomorrow will entail??
