Two Rhode Islanders who specialize in annoying people in their state took a trip up to Boston this week to stick their iPhone in the faces of workers at the Massachusetts State House and demand to know up front who they are and what they do.
"You work for us," one of the two, who does not live in Massachusetts, told one worker who didn't want to talk to them.
"You work in the people's building," they told another worker who didn't want to give them his name. "Just remember you're a public employee, you work for us," they told the worker, who, as a Massachusetts state employee, does not, in fact, work for Rhode Islanders.
After walking into one committee's office and demanding a receptionist's name and title, which she gave, one said, "I'm Enrique, just walking around checking up on our public employees making sure they're professional and courteous to the people that fund this building."
The Rhode Islanders failed to recognize a state representative who helped get one worker away from them.
