There was a time, early in my career, when I thought that the field of city management seemed particularly interesting and worth pursuing. I think I started to rethink that position when the city manager told me that a gentleman here in Lubbock phoned him every morning that the garbage truck woke him up. “I’m awake and you should be, too.” was the message every time.
But I still notice city halls when I travel.

You mean you can call the city to complain about the garbage trucks waking you up? Man! I’ve been missing so much!

Actually, this guy was calling the city manager AT HOME – yikes!!
You can call the city to complain about anything. I used to work for the transit system and once received a complaint from a woman who really needed me to know that the bus driver had said good morning to her, but “he didn’t mean it.” Yep. The nerve of that driver!!
