Caller: Well, it’s not an emergency but do you know why on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95 traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet traffic’s coming the other way across the drawbridge?
Operator: Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic? (pause)
Caller: “[Expletive]” (caller hangs up)
Wow, Joe, you *do* realize that your brother is running for President of the United States… *and* the election is in 11 days. It stands to reason that if you call 911 for some assinine reason as to complain about traffic, the media will most likely hear about it. Do you want your brother to win the election? I mean, he’s already got Sarah Palin and her $150,000.00 shopping spree bringing him down a little. Then there’s his 90% voting record with Bush (who has something like a 22% approval rating.) Then one of his campaign workers made racially charged false accusations of assault and robbery. And McCain himself said he agreed with Obama’s supporters saying nasty things about Western Pennsylvania. And then he said he couldn’t disagree with his supporters. He didn’t need you jumping on the screw his campaign bandwagon. Not his own brother! Are you secretly a democrat? Do you like your brother?
Listen, Joe. Let me give you some advice. I’ll try to make it simple so that you can understand.
I’m not voting for your brother. Not because of the completely ridiculous thing that you just did, though. I’m not voting for him because I think he’s out of touch, wrong on the issues, and makes poor decisions. Now you’ve got me wondering. Does that run in the family? Is the inability to control your temper tantrums nature or nurture? Were you not hugged enough as children?
Listen, I get being pissed off at sitting in traffic. I even get road rage. Traffic pisses me off too. But even in my most crazed, horn-honking, flipping the bird at the jerk that just cut me off -mode, I have never thought it would be a good idea to call 911 to bitch and moan. You live in the DC Metro area. Traffic just is. Accept it. Everyone else has to deal with it, too. And somehow, everyone else manages to deal with it without involving the emergency operators of 911. I hope you didn’t tie up some actual, legitimate emergency call with your inane rambling.
But, come on Joe. You couldn’t have waited 12 days, until after the election, to do something that completely brash and stupid? Well, we Obama supporters, while we certainly do not condone your behavior, thank you for your help.
