I love my job. My job is a public trust. The taxpayers pay me to provide what I consider to be a pretty important service, and in return they expect me to do my job to the best of my ability.
I take nothing for granted. My job could disappear tomorrow, and my bosses – THE TAXPAYERS – could decide they no longer need my services. It’s as simple as that.
Yes, I sometimes have to do things I don’t like. I have sat through all-day meetings. I have sat through mandatory training that lasted several hours. Staff meetings, PowerPoint presentations… you name it.
But I sit through them, and not once have I whipped out my phone and decided that the taxpayers will now pay me to play video games, instead of doing my job!
That’s why shit like this really pisses me off:
Scandal! Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing – worst of all I lost!
— John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) September 3, 2013
Yes, sir! It is a scandal! If my bosses caught me playing video games on my fucking phone during the work day, I would at the very least get a letter of reprimand, and at the very worst lose my job!
You may not take your job seriously, having been sucking on the taxpayer teat longer than I’ve been alive (slight exaggeration, but you know what I mean), but we, the people who pay your salary and your benefits, do take it seriously! And we take it seriously, because every decision you make affects us and our lives, you supercilious, arrogant, worn out colostomy bag!
We pay you to be one of the people who leads this country. We pay you to goddamn pay attention – especially when the hearing is about waging war and possibly sending our children into harm’s way!
So yeah, it is a scandal, John McCain! Maybe you should reexamine your fucking priorities, and remember who it is you’re working for, and who pays you to do the right thing!
