Stress for Success

Sunday, January 15, 2017

Report from Portland, Oregon:

FAIL.

5 days after the 3rd snow storm of the winter and the streets are worse than the 2nd day.

No one is buying the “we’re not used to it” story anymore.  “We’re not used to it” means not used to showing up to work and actually doing work. I refer to the civil servants specifically here, but the lack of work ethic permeates the city.

Somebody save this place, PLEASE!

Nice views? Volcanos, hills, trees.  Sure.  But too bad:  It used to be that one could get there from here.  Unfortunately, now, you can’t get there from here.

You can, however, get to the airport to fly away to another city with other problems.

It’s in the 20’s (Fahrenheit) and the icy, HAZMAX and bus chain rutted roads have ground transportation to a halt.  It is the last straw required to  chase away the tourists and banks faster than human blight on the streets and the last Longshoreman’s strike that chased away the container shipping business.
