    Oil for The Gears, Revisited

    We used to have one of these threads for things that make you smile.

    Yesterday - listening to Indian (dot not feather) employees squirm on the other end of the line when a project they thought they had control over gets commandeered and picked apart by a female project manager with way more knowledge than they have.

    Told my HR manager that I was out of the closet. She told me I could come to work however I wanted.

    A few people gave me grief for my outfits. Went back to HR with their names. I am no longer getting grief for what I wear.

    Couple weeks ago, I was coming home from work. Guy pulls around me doing at least 70 in a 55. I catch up to him at a stop sign; he had to slow down for a school bus.

    Scheduled 2 weeks of PTO for this year. Notified that I have 22.5 days of PTO left to schedule.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Reminds me of a driving trip I made once from downtown Chicago to west side, on Washington Blvd. The lights are timed there (at least they were, back then...), if you go at a steady 28 mph each light will turn green a few moments before you reach it. There was a guy in one lane who'd race to each light, stop and wait, and I'd pass by him at every light, only to have him repeat his racing ahead and waiting, while I'd then pass him again....after about five times he finally caught on and tried to drive slowly enough to time the lights as well, but eventually he just couldn't help himself.

    This Will to Tick Off The Right Wing Snowflakes Especially Jeff Sessions

    San Francisco will retroactively apply California’s marijuana-legalization laws to past criminal cases, District Attorney George Gascón said Wednesday — expunging or reducing misdemeanor and felony convictions going back decades.

    The unprecedented move will affect thousands of people whose marijuana convictions brand them with criminal histories that can hurt chances of finding jobs and obtaining some government benefits.

    Proposition 64, which state voters passed in November 2016, legalized the recreational use of marijuana in California for those 21 and older and permitted the possession up to 1 ounce of cannabis. The legislation also allows those with past marijuana convictions that would have been lesser crimes — or no crime at all — under Prop. 64 to petition a court to recall or dismiss their cases.

    Me: Most bigots have Mommy and Daddy issues that weren't rectified in counseling.
    My friend: But they never sought counseling. They think they're perfect.
