I’ve been a government employee for 17 1/2 years now, and I can still be flummoxed by decisions that come down from above. Here’s the most recent mystery of upper echelons:
After two years of memos requesting a sidewalk due slippery grass in areas where she walked to get to her car, the county agreed to one of our dispatcher’s request, and a few months ago, installed one. A few weeks ago, someone fell off her spiked heels and went down. This someone wasn’t an employee, just a visitor. After a few more weeks, the sidewalk was closed, and yesterday it was removed.
I wonder what will happen if someone should fall down the stairs leading into dispatch?
