Thursday Oct 4 More transit guys

Primo: I wanted to go to the evening shift meeting of the transit union, but when I stopped by, a guy told me I didn't want to go in there.

Me: Why not?

Primo: Because they were having some kind of intra-union squabble.

Me: Yep. Best to avoid that.

Primo: But I told him who I was and he told me that they had talked about me and voted to endorse me. He said that someone who had been in the morning meeting told the story of how you had gotten a job just so I could run and that you take the bus to work. They really liked that story.

Me: Good. Who knew our personal financial decisions would turn into a campaign benefit?

Primo: Except you don't take the bus for the right reasons. You don't care about the earth or reducing oil consumption.

Me: Nope. I just care about my costs. Does it matter why I do it if the result is the same?

Primo: You have to do it for the right reason.

  1. I suspect that the "right" reason for the transit workers is that you pay the fare. Am guessing they are not nearly as concerned about the earth and saving oil as they are concerned about their paychecks. Just sayin...

    Remember all politics is local!

    1. And that's OK with me! People are allowed to act in their own interests!

    1. Darned if I know! Typical PD - preaches this stuff for everyone else but it doesn't apply to him. :)
