8 Simple Rules for Budget Time

I know I'm a day early, but I couldn't resist given that the (Canadian) Federal budget drops today.  If you are a federal public servant you may want to consider following 8 simple rules of Budget Time:

1ST RULE: You do not talk about the budget.

2ND RULE: You DO NOT talk about the budget.

3RD RULE: If someone you don't know asks you about the budget, the conversation is over. 

4TH RULE: Only two types of estimates matter; main estimates and supplementary estimates. 

5TH RULE: One of the Annexes has the information you are looking for.

6TH RULE: No tweeting, no Facebooking. 

7TH RULE: This will go on as long as it has to. 

8TH RULE: If this is your first Budget, you can find it here.

(Note: all of the above is clearly aimed at providing some much needed levity.)
