Enabling – in a negative sense of encouraging dysfunctional behavior

I know, it’s the holiday, and I shouldn’t bother you, but it came up in conversation, during Christmas brunch:

WEB is changing water bill due dates to crack down on the long lines of people paying their water bills on the 8th. Presently, all water bills are due on the same day, hence the lines, but from now on the payment of bills will be staggered, spread over different dates.

DISFUNCTION: Instead of teaching people to pay their bills on line, and migrating us all to the internet you accommodate old habits and perpetuate long lines. You have to teach people to move their banking on line!

ALTO VISTA just got a glistening coat of asphalt, creating one more parking lot.

DISFUNCTION: We need less parking lots. Instead of cracking down on the UTV/ATV traffic around that iconic place you accommodate it with a designated, organized space. We need legislation, not asphalt.

DOGS IN CAGE: For months, Ewald Biemans has been lobbying for a pair of dogs in a steel cage in Palm Beach, no water no shade.

DISFUNCTION: Oh, the bureaucracy is enormous, says the policeman in charge of the “investigation,” we are getting there but the road ahead is long. So, why don’t you make changes. You ARE the law.  

DOGS IN TRUNK: Jack Sparrow who stuffed dogs in a trunk got our visitors up in arms, and nothing happed. This man is in fact damaging what many of us have worked hard to achieve, a prosperous tourist trade.

DISFUNCTION: Oh, the bureaucracy says the coordinator of the NATIONAL PLAN, in charge of the “investigation,” we are getting there but the road ahead is long. So, why don’t you make changes. You ARE the law.   

HOSPITAL SUPERVISORY BOARD: The MinHealth asked for the resignation of the hospital’s supervisory board and got the only female member to step-down. She doesn’t need the headache, she has a huge day-time job already, and a family that needs her.

DISFUNCTION: The hospital supervisory board just lost its most intelligent member, of five years, the smartest by far just stepped down. All others should go home, not her.
