Bluntness

I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Well, it's Thursday.  I had my annual review yesterday.  They rate me as an E (Exceeds expectations) 2 (well positioned for promotion) which means that should one open, I could step right into a Supervisory position.  That ain't gonna happen.  As we get older in life, the goal is to work less, have less stress, and more fun, not deal with customer service issues on a daily basis, or have metrics, or productivity goals to meet.
Oh, and the Idiot Jerk in the White House said that we, as a country, are gong to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  Crazy Christian and Conservative Jews are ecstatic.  Not too many others share their ecstasy.  Of course this is a massively unpopular president who's been catering to the kiss ass crowd who helped him get elected since day one.  Does he care of this move will increase the odds of violence dramatically?  Hell No.  His ego is far to consumed with the love from his base to even begin to understand the ramifications of his actions.
And Donnie Jr. says conversations between himself and the Idiot Jerk are confidential; attorney / client privilege, you know?  I guess he doesn't understand this is pretty much an admission of guilt.  But then I'm sure a lot of people just think he's out and out lying... which would be par for the course.  Even if he isn't, that both the Idiot Jerk and the Jr Jerk felt a need for attorneys to be present is rather damning in itself.  There is the possibility, however, that no one in this family will even fart without an attorney being present.... wait a minute, that's probably true.
As for the Supreme Court hearing the gay cake case?  From what I've read, neither side made an efficient argument, some times even coming across as vague... what's up with that?  My money says when the decision is released in June no one will be satisfied, there will be nothing ground breaking most likely taking a vague anti-discrimination route... though mildly.  Using the "it's against my religion" excuse to openly discriminate, while satisfying the Crazy Christian Crowd would flood the courts with cases.
Finally, I had a customer yesterday who's a Semi-Professional Cyclist...  Skinny guy.  It was a real blast talking to him.  He's on Strava - has over 900 rides under his wheels.  I might actually follow him, even if he doesn't buy and blinds simply because it was really, really neat!

    1. If that happens, would you care for a job as their jailer?
