The citizen isn't always right, one Boston city worker, from BTD, we're guessing, complains.
Yesterday, at 3:43 p.m., an aggrieved citizen filed a 311 complaint about the shocking thing she saw on Tremont Street, between Rutland and West Newton streets in the South End:
There is a woman from BTD smoking cigarettes on Tremont. I think it's disrespectful for a city employee to not be wearing a mask. If she wants to smoke, she can sit in her car and exhale cancer and covid all she wants. Very rude act under these circumstances.
Exactly two hours later, somebody filed a complaint about that complaint:
Hey Karen first of all city employees are allowed to smoke not sure about your job nice of you to offer the city vehicle for smoking in but guess what the vehicles are shared so not smart Karen second how do you drink a drink with a mask on RIGHT so how would she smoke her cigarette with a mask on and lastly I highly doubt you'd ever have the balls to say anything to a person you passed that was smoking so get a life
We await Karen's reply, although since 311 isn't set up as a forum system, she might not even know the complaint complaint has been posted, unless she's among the ranks of 311 browsers who live for stuff like this.
