I mean, really, who didn’t know this was going to happen?
NO WAY was any government going to stop. Their last minute drama failed. Such a boondoggle. (Is that the right word? It should be.) But at the link is a fellow who believes the government COULD have shut down, however.
Sometimes I wish I had a job in the government. So safe, secure, the pension, easy. Of course, you would have to be able to tolerate some rather common fellow workers, but you could just pretend you were in The Office, and having a good time. (That really is one of my favorite shows – at least the syndicated seasons, not this one, which is why a gov’t job doesn’t look so bad now.)
