I know, two highly respected organizations like CPA and Microsoft coming under the Friday Failures microscope at the same time! You might be slightly more surprised than me, because I'm the one writing it and I have been planning it for a few days, but I'm still fairly surprised.
We'll start with Microsoft.
This is probably a commercial some of you have seen. It might be a commercial that was popular in some parts of the world. I'd never seen it was on "The Gruen Transfer" the other night (as a contender for "The Worst Ad Ever"), and I had to share with with you, in case some of you haven't seen it.
Yep, I put that one first so you can all sing along to it while you read the rest of this post.
Next is CPA.
As part of my continuing professional development, I have to do 120 hours every three years of various quizzes, seminars, courses etc. One option I've taken is to do an online quiz on their magazine every month for 1.5 CPD hours.
Usually it's easy. You read the question, skim the article it mentions and find the answer.
This month, the questions got a little trickier..
Thankfully the questions were a bit bigger than that. And you can make them bigger too by clicking on that there picture.
I think what happened there is someone got a bit excited about the long weekend and perhaps slipped a little last Friday afternoon.
And I know the other thing that happened there is even with the question that wasn't really a question, the question that gave no indication as to what the answer might be, the question that isn't really a question at all, I still got it right.
Because. I. Am. That. Damn. Good.
