Er, hello. I've a bit of a problem. I helped out the Mayor of Shoshoni (very small town not terribly far from Scottie's farm) yesterday; he was in a bit of a pickle about a herd of elk having taken over the golf course and-- never mind, it's not important -- and he was so pleased with my help that he made me mayor. And I know it's just my powers acting up to influence him but I've tried very politely to tell him that I'm not interested in being a mayor, or a leader of any sort, really, and he keeps slapping me on the back and calling me "son" and saying I'm being ridiculous.
Help? I don't wish to intrude upon the democratic process and now there are these people following me wanting me to go to meetings about economics. What is the best way to say "no, I'm afraid I'm not mayor" without hurting anyone's feelings or inadvertently causing a civil war?
(And keeping the position is quite out of the question.)
