Which got me thinking, Is there a housing crisis somewhere that, at 9:00 pm on a Wednesday, needs the National Housing Authority's presence? And how terrible is this crisis that the guy in the sedan needs to pick someone up from the mall (who cannot be delayed) to face it? It seems that there is more to housing than meets the eye.
I used to assume that anyone who can't be delayed can request a police escort. Heck, even the lowliest konsehal can have one. It seems that it isn't the case. Underfunded agencies like the National Housing Authority, can only afford a laminated sign that says "NHA Project, Do Not Delay."
In fact, the NHA is so poor that they can't even afford to write a separate vision statement. Imagine that, their mission is the same as their vision. Which is understandable. After all, you need an entire weekend (at least) out of town on a corporate retreat/planning seminar in order to write a sentence saying what your agency does. Maybe that's what's so urgent that can't be delayed.
I hope they solve that crisis soon. I have high hopes though: the "Do Not Delay" sign is a step in the right direction.
