Stirring Up Shit

Ok, when I left off last time, I was getting ready to stage a one bike protest in front of my old employers main office due to the fact he released unrelated private documents of my wife and step-son to an unemployment appeal hearing.  He was actually upset, when the Judge refused to admit the documents into evidence because they were "irrelevent".
Now I am sure there are those who would say; "Since the paperwork didnt get into the record whats the big deal?"  The big deal is this: he doesn't think what he did was wrong.  To him, as long as it gets him what he wants, then he can do or use the files in his "Coaltion" as he see's fit.  This guy doesn't seem to possess the ability to think beyond how things affect him.  Anyone else, is at best secondary, and that's if they are family.  The fact that the documents he released to be submitted into evidence, and thus become public record, contained the social security numbers of my family members, dates of birth, addresses, telephone numbers, and income.  If they had at least cleanesed the records by blacking out the private, "confidential" information I wouldn't be as frustrated as I am.

These are the signs I had mounted between the sissybar and the handlebars on the Harley this morning, when I parked it in front of their offices.  It didnt take long and the same dickwad that submitted the papers drove up in a company vehicle and read the signs.  I was only halfway hoping he would try to rip down the signs, or mess with the bike in someway...but I guess he isn't quite as stupid as I had hoped.  But it didn't take him long to try to block most people from viewing the signs...which is more what I figured he would do.

getting a little close with the bus aren't you?

After he got the 1st bus parked, the Police Chief drove by, and pulled over after reading the sign.  The ex-boss went down the street and talked with him for a few minutes, then walked around the block...Hmmmgetting another bus I wonder?...yep, he sure did.

At first he was going to just nose the bus in next to the bike.  But, I think he remembered the cop was still up the street, and parking the wrong way wasn't going to help him win the cops over.  So, he pulled back out and parked across the street for a minute or so, before heading off down the street to a place he could get turned aorund, then he came back.  Oh, that black pick up...its one of the reporters from the local paper, and he got a bit "uppity" with her as she tried to take pics of the bike and bus parked next to it.

While he was off trying to get the bus turned around, the Mental Health conselor arrived and read the signs on the bike.  I doubt he knew anything about what had happened, but it seemed to slowly sink into the dickwads head that he wasn't going to be able to keep the busses there all day.  Especially after they knew we ahd pulled the car directly across the street to keep an eye on the bike better.

Within 20 mins or so, the bus on the left, was driven off so there was at least some parking space for the clients that were scheduled to come in today.  Shortly after 9:00AM the other bus was driven off to be used on a route...at least I assume so because it was the right time for one to be used. 

After that I had a good 90 minutes of unobstructed view from the street.  I ended up having to go take a piss, and left the wife in the car with the camera just incase anyone caused anyshit.  While I was gone, two of the young women working in the office came out, and took pictures of the bike, the signs, the bikes license plate, the wife in the car, and the cars license plate.  If they had tried to do that when I had been there, I would have taken a picture of them taking pictures.  Since it is only a 2 hr parking on Main Street after 8:30AM, I pulled the signs off the bike and threw them in the car just before 10:30, and rode home.  I had been there for just under 3 hours, and I had at least let it be known I wasn't going to give up on this shit.
The next step, in a week or two, will be to have people actually carrying picket signs back and forth in front of their offices.  I am looking forward to seeing the looks on their muckity-mucks faces, when a perfectly legal protest takes place, and there isn't shit they can do about it.
He is going to slowly stew in his own juices.  And I have no control over what the IRS and other Gov't agencies will be doing about the things he has done.

It might get halfway interesting around here  before too long.

  1. I LOVE seeing Justice served ;-)

  2. the funny thing is, they NEVER park two busses out front of their office like that except MAYBE during some major emergency. so all the locals coming by slowed WAAAY down to see what was going on..and more than a few stopped and read the signs, or circled back around the block so they could read them. there's nothing like trying to block out the view of my signs to give creedance to what they say. kind of self defeating..ain't it?
