Friday, March 20, 2015 – Request for Proposals

As you read on Wednesday, there is a stain in my drive way.  Therefore, I decided to deal with by issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP). I hope all enjoy, but especially my recovering bureaucrat friends and those who are still playing the game..

Request for Proposals

Penis Shaped Stain Tactics or PSST


Based on a home loan executed April 2014, I own a driveway that looks exactly like every other driveway on the street. In March 2015 a grease leak from a parked pick-up truck created a stain that resembles a penis. Therefore, the townhouse with the penis shaped stain (PSS) in the driveway is requesting proposals for the removal or modification tactics of said driveway stain.

Needs Assessment

There is a penis shaped stain in my driveway.  I need it removed.
