To Serve and Resent
A local bus driver comes to terms with his new contract. Read on and wonder no longer why Tim Pawlenty and Peter Bell had such a difficult time trying to negotiate with these people:
In any case, Tim Pawlenty, Peter Bell, David Strom, and basically the Republican Party will never be forgiven. And I’m going to have a hard time thinking about Minnesota as a good place to live. Hopefully we can get someone to try and undo Pawlenty’s twof reign of terror, but I doubt that’s possible. After all he completely undid a hundred years of progress in Minnesota in only two years. I don’t even want to think about what he’ll be up to next.
Is there anything more charming than a government employee with an axe to grind? Sure, they have to accept the taxpayers continuing to fund their healthcare at levels far beyond that offered in the private sector, but they don’t have to like it!
Actually, he doesn’t have to accept it. He could quit his job and save all of us forced to pay his salary the ego driven drama and simmering resentment. Because, I have good news for him, this isn’t slavery! He can seek employment elsewhere and fly as high as his people skills and knowledge of history will take him.
If he does choose to stick around, I just hope he doesn’t let his violated sense of entitlement affect his customer service. I think all the poor and needy abandoned by the Amalgamated Transit Union over the past 45 days deserve at least a smile and a harangue free commute. At least for this week.
