@WayDownSouth you as a commenter are also making some basic mistakes, like glossing over issue of racism that is at the heart of this, and telling people to "let it slide" generally fires up their "just burn it all" reaction. In the future, maybe consider addressing the lived experience of the racism (or misogyny or homophobia or other crap) instead of appearing to just blow it off as something insignificant in the workplace.
@Allison er, my initial read of the comment wasn't naive. way to not complete a thought self.
@Jake Reinhardt I really agree with what you're saying, so I hope my initial read of milena's comment which was "doing your best work isn't what's valued in a contractor" not "if you want to keep your job, don't call out the horrific bigotry that's informing policy". Especially since I thought Dewan implied that had they listened to him and not been absurdly racist, their healthy center would be better off.
@jquick Meanwhile, Safeway is closing all 72 of the Dominick's locations in the Chicago area.
@LookUponMyWorks I just want to rent myself out as a person who stands next to the bride and shouts at her grumpy friends/relatives "THIS ISN'T ABOUT YOU, IF SHE LIKES IT, SHE LIKES IT AND STFU." also "If you picked something over the budget, you're paying the difference." Atlanta does have a higher concentration of dads and brothers being creepily involved in how sexy their daughter/sister looks.
@andnowlights I am that person at a wedding who skips cake so I can keep dancing (BADLY but shamelessly), but idk how it'd be if I was the bride. Minigolf sounds awesome though, but in general floating of ideas because cousins were getting married, my mom and I basically agreed that getting married at a baseball stadium would be neat. So.
@EvanDeSimone I can see that! Especially since I never remember to spend cash so it's basically true. But opening up a tab at a bar is the end of me, budget wise.
@EvanDeSimone If you want to stick to your limit, take cash out. It works wonders (but by the end of the night I end up bitching about how all our money is the same color)
@EvanDeSimone that's the dream! some giant parcel of land in California and a whole passle of dogs.
@LookUponMyWorks Oh I will. Just look at all of them! http://www.pawschicago.org/adoptions/dogs-available-for-adoption/
