Rand about public servants

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread

So why is it that you have to kiss somebody's hind end to get them to do their job? Aren't public servants supposed to be working for us? It seems that in anything we do any more we "have to be nice" and "be careful what you say" or "if he's in a bad mood, he'll make it tougher on you", or that person won't let you do what you want. "They'll make it hard for you, they have the authority."

I know this isn't anything knew, I just needed to rant. How sad it is that people with a teensy bit of power/authority think they're God.

Hi Cindy, So which office of "know it all" authority did you have a run in with?

Permits, septic tank people. We waited and they didn't show up and this and that and the other.
