Real short post - just caught wind of a conversation, about someone who scored(?) a promising career path.

Max, Part 9 - Couldn't even enter the bank lobby, without having an eye-full of that rubbish. Max grimaced at the public service poster
poster, covering the wall before him. Overkill, at the very least - six by six, the thing hogged up. Of course, the subject dealt with home equity loans, but the real agenda of it, wasn't about the low 6% interest rate - that is, of course, if your score qualified. In the background, was a tropical scene - out at sea, was a yacht. The "couple" was sitting at a small beachside table, gazing at each other, while enjoying (equally) fruity drinks. At the bottom, written in not so small letters, was a brief message concerning STD precautions - yeah, the term HIV wasn't used much, if at all, these days, because it ... was no longer socio-politically correct.
And why anyone would risk their home on a vaca they couldn't afford ... silly question:/ Anyway, max made his way over to a small counter, and grimaced again. There were no deposit slips; he'd have to use one of his own - each book of 20 (not 25) checks contained one, maybe two, deposit slips. Choosing another bank? No point there - paper checks were about looked down upon ... merely tolerated as the stuff of oolllld people (who really need to get th ... off the planet). Needless to say, the teller - in his or her pierced baubled glory - only managed to not sneer ... well, not too much at having to touch two slips of paper, handed to him or her. The teller then, immediately after the transaction, gobbled hani-sani.
And why would anyone be so germaphobe over a slip of paper, when a certain piercing proclaimed ... certain practices which weren't sanitary? Silly question;/ Max, of course, was then treated to the usual loan pitch. He, of course, politely declined the offer - he already had a credit card, and didn't need another. And he certainly didn't need any "introductory rate," which could take off for mars, real quick.

Max, Part 8 - Good touted as evil, and vice versa. Max didn't know the exact quote. Of course, he had read the New Testament, a few times, throughout his 20-some years.

Another bad example, simpering churchian platitudes ... no wonder people head for buddism, or whatever :(
Bad example. Yesterday, while at the bank, was looking over the finance lit they had, and was thinking

This recent anti-abortion drama ... wait, why hasn't this been resolved? It's been almost 50 years. Why suddenly now?
Yeah i get it, abortion is choosing murder. And guess what else! Yep, i never had to make that choice, so can only imagine what it's like to be pregnant and unmarried. There you are, young and starting out in life, working and making enough to support yourself, but not much else. Having a baby means time off work, medical bills, and no paycheck coming in. You'll need clothing and other stuff for the baby, including day care - big cha-ching.
And then, down the road, will be more time taken off from work. In day care, even before covid, if yer kid sneezed, you'd get a call at work (probably on payroll tuesday) to come get your child. Then there's things like doctor and dentist appointments, car repairs and such. Needless to say, when you have a job, and want to keep it, your boss expects you to be there.
So, these are things which pregnant single women are up against. And these things are why the US has domestic relations offices in about every county - where the staff works hard to find da-duh and make him pay. Still, alot of mental drama ... for single mom who is trying to focus on her job, so she can keep getting her paycheck, and keep a roof over her and her child.
And now, there's talk about limiting abortion. Why now? Seems all of a sudden...where has been this moral-majority, over the last almost half a century? Frankly, i cannot help but to smell an agenda - one that is directly covid related.
"My body, my right!" Guess that's got to go.
