What will future generations think about the people we’ve elected? Here’s one example.
Wednesday wasn’t that exciting. Well, four of us went to a bus stop a block north of the bus stop that got canceled. The bus driver took no notice of us at all, zooming right by, even though the bus has stopped at that stop for a long time. The bus stopped for us at the canceled stop, but it took us too long to walk there. I’d guess that the driver is attempting to game the system in some way here. One of the guys who rides the bus was handing out half-sheets of paper with the official procedure for “How to complain to the transit authority about a bus driver” printed on them. They were pretty popular. People were complaining audibly and at length about the driver. I have no idea what’ll happen here. It probably depends on money, internal politics at the outside contractor, and how many complaints show up about the driver.
I went upstairs to give blood, and there were more donors than there were phlebotomists, so it took a bit longer than usual. Some minor triumphs (problems fixed, feature added), and some minor letdowns (people who had not Read The Fine Manual about MySQL replication, yet wanted to put it in place.) All in all, a reasonable day barring the bus driver.
