Salute to Volunteers
It's the least I can do. Jim probably thinks I'm giving his growing list of enemies a target, but I'm actually trying to compliment people who volunteer untold hours to serve their community.
Some psychotherapist (who also does amazing things with cabinets) with a Master's Degree from Kutztown testified earlier this week that more than half of all drunks and pot heads are actually raving lunatics who want to have sex with giraffes. He might even be right because I do think giraffes are kinda' cute. But we addicts and alkies are perfectly normal compared to your average Zoning Hearing Board member.
These guys technically get paid . But it's about three cents an hour to sit through never-ending meetings. No matter how they decide, they're going to piss people off.
Who in his right mind is willing to do that?
Then there's school boards, who also have an uncanny knack of never being able to make anyone happy. And these are volunteers who don't even get three cents an hour.
I could see volunteering to be a firefighter. True, you could get fried, but sounds pretty cool.
They make movies about these guys running into burning buildings and thwarting terrorists. But school director? ZHB member? What cool movies do they make about them?
We bloggers are starting to get into movies. True, we're usually cast as bad guys. But we're there.
