I did not vote for you.

This is how I started off my morning yesterday. Needless to say, it was kind of an awesome day.

So I'm walking along in a non-specific location when the mayor zips up beside me. I turn to him and say, "Hey! Good morning."

The Mayor: "Do you know where I can find (blank) and (blank)?"

Me: "Sure! You just go around that corner over there and then go straight. You'll see it when you get around the corner."

The Mayor: "Great, thanks!"

Me: "No problem."

He then zips off in his lightning fast wheelchair. As soon as he is out if earshot I mutter, "And you can tell your garbage buddies I said thanks for not picking up my goddamn garbage despite the fact that I followed the protocol, ya turd."

Then I carried on my merry way.

Heh. I totally called the mayor a turd.

This is not unlike the time I ran past him at the Sun Run and in my out-of-breath whisper said to myself, "I did not vote for you, but thanks for the encouragement."

I saw him outside of his apartment a few weeks ago...My first instinct was to say "Booooooooo!" But I didn't.
