My buddy's a barber on the go - he's been everywhere - one time he was escorted to a city hall, and the bureaucrats explained that he needed permits etc. Well he said he was a decent barber, just trying to stay off welfare and never hurt anybody. He reminded them besides that, by the time they spent all that money enforcing on him, he'd be 5 states away. So they decided he was harmless & let him go. The delay irritated him though so he sweet-talked the guy who ran the nursing home (city-managed, and heck he just HAD come from city hall :) who sorta lent him a room, he got his clippers and he ended up with a $300 afternoon, free supper and a few good visits! Then ran like heck! That story he calls "Bureaucrats indeed" :)
