The 11 Best Weezer Songs:
I have a part-time on the city council. Yes, my city council position is only part-time. Partly because I'm not paid. Yet, they treat you like you're a full time employee. It's a thankless job filled with mostly 60 and over citizens who have nothing else to do with their lives but sit on a bench and bark about why their opinions are so much more insightful and accurate than anyone else's. Lately our attendance has been in the toilet. If I could drag 2 bums to come listen to the role call, I'd double the audience size. So I came up with this brilliant idea to get people in the door...we'd bribe them with free food. Currently, we were swimming in money. And one thing you should know about elderly folks...they hate spending money. Ironic, considering they should be spending their money as fast as possible before they die. I finally convinced them to hire the In-N-Out burger truck for a meeting. And guess what...hundreds of people showed up. It was our biggest showing...ever. Then a funny thing happened...all the council members who were crying about spending money on free food (and voted against it) were the first ones taking credit for the free food. Out in public, they were heroes. But behind closed doors...they did nothing but complain. Some didn't like the hamburger...where was the food for vegans? What about Kosher food? How come we got chips instead of fries? (In-n-Out doesn't deliver fries) And the best complaint, we had TOO many people.
During my entire service on the council...all the complained about was attendance. The second we got people there, they complained that there were too many people there and they were all there for the wrong reasons.
At this point, I'm quitting politics. It's too stressful to try to make everyone happy all the time, when no matter what you do...no matter how helpful it is...it pisses EVERYONE off.
