stupid form [Jul. 17th, 2004|04:33 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
The O'Reilly speaker registration form has as a required field the "check in" and "check out" dates for my hotel, to "better coordinate" something or other I skimmed over.

Since I live in Portland, I ignored the red asterisks and submitted anyway. It bitched, of course.

Instead, I entered "I live here" for hotel and my birthday and expected date of death for check in and check out.

Yay stupid forms.

Another Stupid Form

Your experience reminds me of another stupid employment application form which claimed it would accept volunteer work experience. However, the form would return a "$0.00 / hour is not a valid entry" error if volunteer work experience was entered. Interestingly enough, the same form did accept $0.01/hour as a valid entry.
