From Under the Bridge
I was assigned to this bridge by the union in 1935, immediately after completion by the WPA. In those days, foot traffic and children on bicycles kept me pretty busy. In fact, had it not been for our union contract requiring mandatory breaks and lunches, it would have been non-stop.
The hardest part of my job is living up to people’s expectation. The hair, make-up, and uniform have to be perfect if you want people to take you seriously when demanding the toll.
The availability of automobiles has eliminated a lot of our jobs. When is Obama going to extend unemployment benefits to trolls?
