|Waiting for the News that This Was All a Big Joke
||[Dec. 8th, 2016|08:24 am]
Between the news that keeps coming out about future presidential administration and navigating the Health Insurance Marketplace, I sometimes feel like I've been dropped into a novel by Kafka or Joseph Heller.|
This is great:
Lol naw man, she's like a month old.
Yep, that's right.
Indeed. That zero is still zero.
Oh my god yes. Zero. Zilch. We've established this three times already. Can we move on?
...And then these were two actual questions they asked, one right after the other.
The whole thing is like this, you guys. And then for some reason you get to the end and it's convinced that your husband isn't actually in your family, giving you no reasons for this conclusion, and if you want to edit one thing you have to start the whole process over again.
Also there's a little spinning "wait" wheel after every single question, giving you this awesome 1-2 second delay after every entry. And even though that may not sound like much, let me assure you, after a few times through the entire thing, it slowly drives you insane.
Also it auto-fills like 90% of the things correctly, but not all of them.
I don't know if I could make a more subtly infuriating application process if I tried.
(Note: Lest anyone get the wrong impression, I'm not hating on the ACA overall. Web UIs just hold a special place in my heart, and when they are done bizarrely, it stings.)
