There are some folks who just should have some jobs.
For instance, if you’re the kind of person who enjoys tinkering, trying new things and generally being flippant about the way in which you operate your life, we would suggest that you’re probably going to make for a lousy doctor.
Or, let’s say that you’re a big fan of drama. You enjoy riding the waves of gossip and watching how the scandals unfold in front of you. You’re not going to last more than a few minutes as a therapist.
And we can’t suggest that anyone who is prone to power-tripping find themselves in any sort of civil or governmental role at all, as they’ll immediately make the job about themselves and their own personal actions, and not about what’s best for the people they serve.
This is precisely how one California health inspector has now come under fire.
Bart Avery, one of the owners of Bravery Brewery in Lancaster, Calif., said the inspector visited the brewery at about 11 a.m. on Super Bowl Sunday. She told one of his employees that the brewery was in violation of county guidelines because there was no food truck, and it had to close, he said.
Avery said the inspector turned out to be incorrect and the establishment had every right to be open. The brewery was only pouring draft beer to go, so– despite her claim– they did not need a food truck to operate. She eventually admitted that there was some kind of misunderstanding and business there could resume. One of the inspector’s bosses also called to apologize for the confusion the next day, he said.
But what happened after the inspector ordered the brewery to shut its doors is what has people up in arms.
An LA County health inspector dances moments after ordering @BraveryBrewing to close. She ended up being wrong. Ruined BB's Super Bowl business.

The moment was surreal.
Avery eventually went back to view one of the security cameras and said he spotted the inspector break into a dance just moments after delivering the news that the place had to close. Of course, he has no way of knowing why the inspector felt compelled to dance, but “the perception really sucks,” he said.
She had just informed the worker that he could be out of a job, he said. Considering all the pain that these lockdowns inflicted on small business owners, the dance was jarring, he said.
We can only hope that this health inspector finds a much different profession…and soon.
