my stomach sank this morning

i've been quite conflicted about the transit strike.

 

i'm a union guy and a public employee. i pay my dues, have served as 'shop steward' twice, ran for a senior position in my union. my sympathies are for the union by nature.

 

i also see how this strike is causing great pain upon the city and its people.

 

i've been on a diet for the last month and have been getting breakfast at this joint since i started. this morning the counter guy noticed the big ole camera around my neck; "you take pictures of the traffic? me too!" he says to me. "after this i'm gonna sue them".

 

i thought "them" meant the union and i felt a sense of guilt and shame. do i have to defend the twu? was my loss of appetite caused by that disgusting 'sue everyone attitude' or something else?

 

on the other hand i bought a new belt last week and those 501 jeans are looking like 550's. should i continue getting brreakfast from these guys?

 

i wish the strike to end when i press the 'OK' button below.
