Erick, don’t do anything stupid like this…

PHILADELPHIA – Mayor John F. Street abruptly ended his wait in line for an iPhone Friday after a passer-by asked him about the city’s murder rate.

Street, who showed up outside an AT&T store at 3:30 a.m., left shortly after a 22-year-old sporting a mohawk asked him, “How can you sit here with 200 murders in the city already?” The Philadelphia Inquirer reported on its Web site.

Street told the man: “I’m doing my job,” the newspaper said.

Street had planned to stay in line for most of the day, waiting for Apple Inc.’s iPhone to go on sale at 6 p.m. When he left at 11:30 a.m., Street said he planned to return to his spot.

“Philly mayor waits for iPhone, then leaves line”

Erick, since you’re not a member of the Macon City Council yet, your lollygagging around at North Point Mall is ok, but once you get sworn in, get yourself a trusty intern to do all this waiting-in-line.
