Our annual ethics test has changed and is now read by a person with a snooty British accent.
Mind you, I don’t think that British pronunciation per se is snooty. I love British pronunciation. But the fellow who reads this training does sound obnoxious and condescending. He sounds like he’ll go fox-hunting in a tweed jacket right after he finishes lecturing us on how to be good little servants. I fully expect him to refer to state employees as “the help” any second now.
And I really hate it how they break up the training into tiny little segments to make sure you can’t do anything else while you listen to it. Of course, I’m smarter than some snooty fox-hunting Brit, so I’m blogging up a storm while he drones on.
I wonder how much the services of the snooty fox-hunter cost the state of Illinois and how many academic journal subscriptions we could get with that money.
