A very popular driving range/mini golf/par 3 golf course in East Longmeadow is being harassed and threatened by some asshole on the Board of Health, and a lot of people are buzzing about it.
Meet Aimee Petrosky, East Longmeadow’s resident Board of Health Gestapo agent.
As you can see, her and I have the same barber.
Prior to this her career highlight was being elected “President of Red Sox West” after starting an online campaign to win the crown. Her primary selling point was apparently, “look at this tattoo I got above my fun box.”
Aimee was hired five years ago, and according to her she really wanted to work with local businesses by meeting on an “emotional level,” because she wanted them to be heard.
She added that she also has a background in social work, which is often beneficial to calm tensions during inspections.
“For me, the key is the help people feel heard because they’re running a business – this is their livelihood, this is how they feed their families – and it becomes emotional other than the technical part of the food safety,” she noted. “If you can help meet them on that emotional level … most of the time it is able to deescalate.”
What part of threatening family owned small businesses is “helping them on an emotional level” Aimee?
After getting the full time gig, which was created just for her in 2015, she stressed that she wanted to build relationships with local businesses.
She continued, “One of the issues for the businesses is that they don’t have that consistency. They don’t have someone that they have been able to build a relationship with … One of the things that I try to let people know right when I go in [is], ‘I want to be your food safety partner.’”
Yea, if only businesses in East Longmeadow had some consistency. Like when they adhere to social distancing guidelines they don’t get fined and threatened by the health inspector on a power trip. Sounds like a great way to “build a relationship” with the family owned business that’s been in existence for 80 years. Apparently Aimee’s degree from Smith College and her background in social work now makes her an expert on the commie cold.
But of course the Karens were loving it.
If you think that people are dying because of people hitting golf balls outdoors then you are a fucking idiot. There’s really nothing more that needs to be said about that.
“You broke the law.”
Oh yea? What law is that cuntzilla? Last I checked an “order” from a governor that hasn’t been challenged in court or voted on by anyone wasn’t a law. But yea, as long as you feel “safe” and post about how we all need to “stay the fuck home,” I guess you don’t don’t really care if a family owned business goes out of business because an overzealous health agent feels like exercising the small amount of power that she has.
I don’t know anything about that poor guy in the picture with Beth-Anne, but I’m sure he’s secretly thinking, “get me the fuck out of this house” every time he wakes up and sees that face.
Then there was this chud.
- Opening up your business is not against any laws
- Your father isn’t in danger from you hitting golf balls
- “You’re not supposed to be returning to your normal life,” is a pathetic thing for a grown man to say. It means you’re dependent on the government telling you when you’re allowed to live a “normal life.”
- Being open is not “contrary to social distancing” because you have to stand at least 6 feet away from someone swinging a golf club, and if you go mini golfing you’re probably with family.
- The “if you can’t afford to shut down your business for 5 months then you shouldn’t be in business” is something that only a person who has never owned a business would say.
Point and laugh at this man if you ever see him in public.
Make sure you get within six feet of him and don’t wear a mask. Do whatever you can to make people like this upset. They are horrible selfish pieces of shit who want businesses to be destroyed so that they can feel safe.
