UW's Cars

"So, see, in order to be a Chancellor, you gotta have a car."

"Agreed. You should be able to get to and from the office."

"Well....not just ANY car. It should be a special car. You know--a car fit for a Chancellor. That'll be $700.00/month plus thirty cents per mile, please. And not just 'to get to the office.' We have important things to do--all over the State. So we need mileage reimbursement."

"I don't get it. You want the State to pay for the car AND you want the State to pay for all the miles you rack up on the car, too? Isn't that sorta, kinda, double-dipping?"

"No, you damn rabble. It's not 'double-dipping.' It's common practice in business."



"So when businessmen I know are only getting $595/month plus 10 cents per mile, what's up with that?"

"Obviously, those businessmen are merely taxpayers. They are not Chancellors."

"Oh, yeah. Sorry about that. Stupid question."
