This is the kind of crap that ruins a Saturday.
And this is the BS they mean when they say, "All politics are local."
Primo met a woman a while ago who told him that he could put campaign signs in her yard anytime.
Over the past few campaigns, he has put up signs for himself and for other candidates in his party.
Never any problem.
He ran into Yard Sign Woman again a few weeks ago at a forum for city council candidates.
Again, she re-iterated that Primo could always use her yard for signs.
Two days ago, Primo put up a sign for one of the city council candidates. YSW wasn't at home, but Primo thought he had standing permission because of the conversation they'd had.
Late last night, YSW wrote an angry post on City Council Candidate's facebook page that SOMEBODY had put a sign in her yard AND SHE DID NOT WANT IT THERE.
CCC apologized, explained that nobody in her campaign would put up signs without permission, and said she would remove it immediately.
Primo woke up and saw the post.
He got out of bed, got dressed, and immediately went to YSW's house to apologize.
She wasn't home.
He came home and apologized on facebook, then tried to call her. The phone number he had is no longer valid.
He messaged CCC and apologized. She assured him it was not a big deal and it was over forgetaboutit.
Then he gets a message from not running again city council rep - the one who has been to our house several times and has never once remembered who I am (just the person who lives here with Primo) or my name (you know, the wife of Primo).
Not Running Again texts that someone known to both NRA and Primo had called him to complain about YardSignGate.
Primo got YSW's phone number from NRA. Called. She didn't answer, so he left a message.
Lord. Have. Mercy.
I hope this is over. This is way too much drama.
