Silly bureaucrecy

At my day job, one of the web sites I have to work with to ship goods out of the US is a site called AES direct.  It is the classic example of government bureaucracy. 

This morning I got an email from them, which is not unusual. However, the subject and content made me giggle. The subject line said: AES Unscheduled Maintenance Outage.

I won't include the whole email, but here is the part that made me giggle:

The AES production and education regions will undergo an unscheduled maintenance outage beginning at 11:00 PM EST Saturday, March 24, 2012.  Both regions will be restored by 3:00 AM EST Sunday, March 25, 2012

"Unscheduled"?  Hum...  Wonder if I can schedule a unscheduled day off?

Silly goverment.
