Dear the State of Connecticut,

I offer you one word: Bagels. You made me show up at 8:30 in the morning, miss work, sit idly in an over-air conditioned room all day surrounded by cretins, dismissed me at nearly 3 pm based on information I could have given you when I first walked in, and overall ruined my day. The least you could have done is given me a bagel. People might not complain so much about "their civic duty" if there was food. Just sayin'.
