Two days ago I asked an information operator in the Washington D.C. area for the phone number of the office of Sen. William Frist. She said that she couldn’t find a listing for a Senator William Frist. There was not one listed. So I asked her to check under Dr. William Frist or just Bill Frist. She still couldn’t find anything. Then the following exchange took place:
Operator: What did you say he was?
Me: A Senator. He’s the Majority Leader – the Senator from Tennessee.
Operator: Well, if he’s the Senator from Tennessee, then why did you call information for Washington?
I do fine around people who have special needs in learning. But I just can’t tolerate people who seem to cultivate ignorance of the most basic things.
Damn it! Her vote will count as much as mine!!!
