It was like coming back in Italy. I worked hours and hours on the applyication for the italian public school board for teachers. It is like swimming against the courrent because the gouvernment website is quite impossible to understand. Once you succeed to have the application form in your hands your problems are just about to start. It is written in a special language made with the special purpose of being incomprehensible and to be filled with data from the stone age, absurd to tell and impossible to find (some questions sound just like “which colour was the chair of the first left-handed classmate you had?) Seriously?
You have no choice: you need to feel that form closing your eyes and hoping that the answer is pertinent. That is Italian bureaucracy
