The Paperwork

      I just had to go down to Boeing, and do my "Pre-Employment Paperwork." I had to drive all the way to Boeing Field (its a 15! minute drive), and wait for 30 minutes to get a Visitor Badge.
      The reason it took so long to get the badge was because a bunch of interns were there to do the same thing as me... fill out 3! sheets of paper. And it turns out, there are 3 people from the University of Idaho that are here as interns too. I'd actually heard about one of them, from some of my friends. Everytime I said I was going to be at Boeing this summer, someone would say: "OH! My friend Brad is going to be there too." It turns out that Brad is even going to be working in my building. But, he's doing accounting or something. It seems like almost all of the interns that I was there with today are doing some sort of business type intern, not technical. They also had to go through a formal interview process... and as I said before, I only had to talk to Paul for 6:48 before he gave me a job. Anyways, there is also some girl that is from U of I too, but I already forgot her name.
      It took a total of 5 minutes to fill out the paperwork. And it only would have taken 5 seconds if the "leader lady" hadn't been giving us instructions: "Put your birthday in the box marked birthday, and the date in the box marked date..."
      So, I don't know why we just didn't mail this paperwork in, its wasn't complicated or anything. But, they did have to photocopy my passport to verify that I was a citizen.
