So, today I bought the old building back from the potheads and sold them the new building, with a 10% positive difference, and neither one of us has to pay municipal taxes for two years, because we are both *technically* moving a business into the city (both businesses are changing zip codes).

I shouldn't be proud of this sort of shit, but I am actually proud of this shit.

Today:

Me:  "Okay, so I can get that sick new PLC software now, right?"

Dan:  "Sorry, there is no money."

Me:  "WTF?  I just recovered $780K AND saved us $1.5 million in moving costs."

Dan:  "Moving costs?  I know nothing of these 'moving costs'."

Me:  "Oh, you son of a bitch.  It's a lousy $9K."

Dan:  "9K is a lot of money."

Me:  "9K doesn't even show up on my budget."

Dan:  "See?  There is no $9K."

Me:  *incoherent screaming*.

Dan:  "This is all normal, Hamish."

One of my technicians didn't show up today.

Because on Friday afternoon, he did the road rage thing and shot a 50 year old man to death and wounded the man's 6 year old grandson.

There is no joy in Mudville.

What the actual fuck? I suppose it's a good thing he never had a case of "work rage".

That was in fact the hot topic of the water cooler crowd today.

I've been reading about an awful lot of incidents similar to this lately, people who just flew off the chain and killed people over little shit, like just recently in Georgia four were shot, including the gunman, and one store clerk died because a customer was asked to put on a fucking mask, there was the road rage incident in California where a 5-6 year old boy was shot and died in the backseat of a car, there's more, but listing all of them would be draining, there was the religious guy in Georgia who went through shooting up Asian massage parlors in Georgia because of his "sex addiction"...

Maybe I'm late to the party but it would seem we need to rethink a few things about the right to bear arms.

There has been so much anti-mask conspiracy theory rhetoric (QAnon, etc.) that I'm rather surprised that this didn't happen a lot sooner, like the Pizzagate thing.

The mainstream news media leaned in hard to Long's sex-addiction claim; but tended to downplay his history of racism and misogyny.

At least until Americans as a whole grow up and stop acting like spoiled two-year-olds.

Today at work:

Luis:  "I think I'm ready to retire."

Me:  "By an odd coincidence, your pay went up $5/hour."

Luis:  "But I'm tired.  I want to go home.  I'll be 69 next week."

Me:  "If you work a year or two at the new rate, your social security checks will be measurably larger, AND you'll get the higher rate for late retirement."

Luis:  "You son of a bitch."

Me:  "We're going to do great things.  Forever."
