Doing a routine brake pad change on the wife's van I noticed a pinhole leak in the cylinder seal on the caliper and evidence of leaked/burnt brake oil. She had been complaining about a funny smell and pedal softer than usual. This is "good" because it means the issue is identified before becoming a serious problem and doesn't leave her stranded anywhere.

It's "bad" in that I have to tear the thing apart again when we get the new caliper sent out, but that's life and I don't mind car work as much as computer work. At least a mallet is a valid tool to use on the car and that's always good stress relief.

Saw Trevor Noah live stand up last night. I know he probably has some haters on this board, but his stand up was funny, and he didn’t make it overly political.

I admire that you enjoy life but I don’t admire what you enjoy about it.

He has his moments. The sketch they did on the daily show right after the smollet thing happened was hilarious, and they were actually honest about it.

Got kicked out of an autistic adult client’s home today. He had already mentioned he’s “antisocial” and on the spectrum. As he was relating his situational problems my co-worker was making an empathetic like “oh” noise occasionally to demonstrate he was listening

Of course this person being autistic with almost no socializing experience didn’t understand social norms and interrupted saying “why are you making those noises? I don’t need your fake pity!” Before myself or my co-worker could explain that sometimes people will make a noise like “oh” or “uh huh” to demonstrate that they are listening to the person, especially when they are facing at a 45 degree angle due to the furniture’s position to where if they didn’t make the occasional acknowledgement noise, it could possibly come across that they were staring off into space and completely ignoring the person, he got too angry

Not only did he not understand social queues but he also went from 0-100 yelling to “shut up!” And “get out!”. Unfortunately for him, he had already dropped that he was considering suicide by cop, so the next step was to commit him to a psychiatric facility. If he is going to turn into the next mass murderer, you can’t say the mental health professionals didn’t try to stop it

Coulda been worse, heard a different co-worker got punched in the face earlier this week by a teenage client. People goin’ wild and out these days…

I cant do it. You couldnt be more like a car salesmen trying to loosen me up if you tried. The note gag is funny though.
