I still haven't heard anything about their plans for my route. I think almost everyone else has had their consultation which confirms what I've always believed; no one cares what I think.
Today I called someone at church a suck-up because she was telling the pastor how moving the sermon was, and citing examples of things he'd said.
She told me that she didn't let her kids use the word "suck-up" in their house. "Ha," I said, "this isn't your house, this is church!"
