Had I client meeting today with a lady who’s been reliably irritating at every encounter. THREE HOURS into what was supposed to be a simple EP signing, I realized I had my rosary in my pocket and had to start praying to keep from strangling her with it… so that was my day.

Why not just tell her of the inefficiencies and wastefulness and then seek Penance? Perhaps tell he that she bothers you with the bloviating, as you have Penance as a backup plan?

Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?

Philosophical question (not trying to be political, just a genuine question I’ve been grappling with): do you think being pro-choice and pro-vax mandate are logically inconsistent? Both are sincere views of mine, but upon further reflection I haven’t been able to think of a way one position could be completely defended without undermining the other. Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?
