While we are told to worry about toilet paper with the mayor’s face on it our unaudited bureaucrats continue to do little work and waste lots of taxpayer money. While I was running by the Burger King in Druid Heights on North Avenue at 1:30pm on Tuesday I saw an HABC (Housing Authority of Baltimore City) SUV idling in the drive-through line. Was the esteemed HABC employee on his lunch break or did he just feel like he needed a Burger King break? Why couldn’t the HABC employee get off his lazy butt and walk into the Burger King to get his artery hardening treat? At least by the time he will need his triple bypass Baltimore will have long ago declared bankruptcy and tax payers probably will no longer be paying for retired bureaucrats health costs. The license plate on the HABC SUV contained the following numbers: 88994. I did not catch the letters.
Such wasteful behavior is just a sign of bigger problems. I doubt this guy gets much work accomplished and probably cuts out of work early on a regular basis. His manager probably is inefficient also. Who knows though? Baltimore does not have audits that could mathematically reveal all sorts of related inefficiencies. The city bureaucracy lacks oversight on so many different levels.
