Came accross this story on Total Buzz this morning. To paraphrase Mel Brooks, “It’s good to be the King!”
by NORBERTO SANTANA JR.
Ever drive to the local mall, or workplace, and find that someone drivingÂ an expensive SUV resembling a Star Wars battle cruiser has taken up two parking spaces?
It’s the CEO.
Tom Mauk – who oversees the county government’s sprawling bureacracy – has been making daily friends on a regular basis by parking his county-purchased Caddie on two slots.
The car was featured recently on an attack ad run by the local union across the local airwaves. And in the blog comments on our post regarding the ad, employees started an interesting discussion about what that says to the others. Apparently, some workers are even starting to take a few spaces themselves and leaving notes to the other drivers that reads, “You’ve been Mauked.”Â Â
My comment to the post was simple enough:
Kind of reminds me of my big fat cat. Sprawled out on the sofa taking the whole thing up leaving no room for others. But heck, Mauk is a fat cat, heâ€™s earned his â€œperks.â€ He should be able to enjoy them. Right?
After all, when you rise to the heights of senior management youâ€™ve earned the right to push others out of the way. SNARK!
