Well, it looks like one of our Guest Bloggers has decided that FaNagle the Bagel is the place to be! We have named this Guest Blogger the BAGEL BLOGGER but we are not sure if it is the same blogger who nailed the DPW truck last week. Stay tuned. . .
Their post follows:
Well, LBA fans, while picking up my dry cleaning this morning at Ursula Plaza I noticed the white Department of Recreation van pulled up, filled with blue shirted recreation employees (seasonal I suppose) and then parked in the fire lane, with the engine running. One after another the employees piled out of the van and into FaNagle the Bagel to order their breakfast sandwiches. After 15 minutes, with breakfast now in their individually wrapped brown bags, the crew piled back on board the still running, still illegally parked city-owned and operated van and went on to what, I suppose, was the destination their supervisor THOUGHT they were headed for no less than 15 minutes earlier.
Being more than a little miffed at this gross waste of city resources I decided to follow along and see what the next destination was. I soon learned, after watching the van make an illegal lane change and no less than three turns without signaling, that the desination was Jerry Morgan Park where, while one employee emptied garbage cans, the remainder of the team of seven or more employees proceeded to take up spots around the fieldhouse to devour their Bagle Bounty.
Since I am retired and on a fixed income, I decided to figure out the cost of this little excursion. I figure a dollar for the gas used to get them there, idle and then on the park, at $7.15 an hour I estimated they cost the city $23.24 in salaries alone (probably more with employer taxes, etc). So more than $25.00 of taxpayer money so the recreation staff could enjoy a nice breakfast on the clock.
IT ALL MUST END!!!
