KUSA-TV in Denver is sick at th news that workers at the state’s Emergency Operations Center were planning to use the office computers to buy seats for Rockies games.

The department head sent out an e-mail to all employees instructing them to be online by 9:30 a.m. on Monday, since World Series tickets are set to go on sale at 10 a.m.:

I need volunteers to help push the buttons in attempting access. You will need to use break time, lunch time or leave time to do this and the only real perk I can offer right now is that if someone does not pay for their tickets within 3 days, you will get first crack at them“.

Your tax dollars at work, ladies and gentlelmen.
