Street Fiddles

I think now I have to call him John “I’m doing my job” Street. After reading this article, it’s pretty clear that despite his assertions, that no, he is not. Can you imagine what would happen to me if I decided to leave the office for a day to stand in line for an iPhone?

UPDATE: Well, at least John Street had the decency to pull up a chair and wait in line with everyone else.  Mayors of some other towns didn’t even have the decency to do that.

    You’d be in line until someone came up to you and said ‘Hey, how can you be here when the file server needs to be rebuilt?’. Then you’d leave some poor first level support tech to hold your place in line while you went to the office.

    Maybe we need to force all elected officials to be in their offices from 9 – 5, just like the majority of people.
