So Earl (@theultravioletcatastrophe) and I took our daughter to the park yesterday. When we arrived I pulled into a parking spot and there were two garbage cans sitting there right in front of us on the sidewalk. I quickly looked over to Earl and just expectantly waited for the punchline to come. He sat there for a second, then oh so quietly whispered, “I’m home”.

Grey: 2 facts about my favorite things

One of my favorite things is sleep. I guess it’s a silly thing to list here, but I do it a lot and I just like being comfy. I have actually slept 22 hours straight before. It was awful, actually, but in GENERAL sleep is great and I want to do it so much.

I’m actually having a hard time narrowing this down to one more thing, so I’ll just say another thing I like a lot is giving people massages. I like feeling the muscles beneath my hands and being able to manipulate them. I feel a sort of… empathy towards their body* if that makes sense? But empathy for physical feeling rather than emotions, where I can instinctively tell what motion feels good for the other person or what doesn’t as I’m making the motions. I’m not sure how to describe it. Anyway, I like making people feel relaxed and comfortable, and it’s relaxing to me to do so.

*which is also true for me during sex

i love taking customer feedback surveys for everywhere i go and leaving stellar reviews. it makes me feel so good and i know from experience it helps the employees out

seriously i worked retail for years and even as a hairstylist my company thrives on good reviews. so many people don’t bother taking a survey unless they’re pissed off and want to punish retail/food service/service industry workers, so taking a couple minutes to leave good 10/10 (if it’s not a perfect score unfortunately they count it as a bad thing, so always leave a 100% positive review of your experience if it was satisfactory!) responses on the surveys of places you eat and shop at makes a huge difference

just dropping a name of your server or cashier or rating your experience a 10/10 can seriously improve the week of the minimum wage employees who work thankless jobs, and it actually does make a difference

You know what reviews companies especially appreciate?

Good reviews of their staff who did their best even when shit went wrong.

When I was in Chicago for Train Jam a group of us went to pizza one night and things kept failing: the pizza ovens were broken, they ran out of glasses and certain food, even certain drinks. Our server was a champion - he tried his best to keep us happy even while the restaurant was not at its best (we weren’t actually pissed, we weren’t heavily inconvenienced by the issue really). We were all non-American so the guy talked to us about Chicago and kept us company. He truly made the night worth it despite him literally walking out of the store for a few minutes because the night was so ridiculous, so we gave him a massive tip for bearing with it.

That night I wrote a Twitter story and a Facebook review basically praising our server dude and detailing the night we had. I wasn’t really expecting anything from it except a hope that the guy got a raise.

The next day the restaurant contacted me over Twitter and asked if we’d like to come back for free deep dish pizza. They were so sweet and fun about it too.

So we did! Our server guy was there, we had a MUCH BIGGER group, and the night wasn’t in shambles so we got to enjoy the free pizza (as well as a ton of other stuff and drinks). And again, we left our guy a big tip because he kept us company and was generally AWESOME.

So if you’re in Chicago, go to Gino’s East downtown and look for Mason. ANd if you’re in this situation where your experience is going awry but the staff are trying their hardest to help you anyway, please let the company know!

The man holding this #BlackLivesMatter sign is Richmond (CA) police chief Chris Magnus, whose department has not lost an officer or killed a citizen since 2007, the year after he took over. This is not an accident, this peacefulness is the direct result of his leadership. Police departments across the country should be looking to his department as an example to be followed.

‘Chief Magnus changed the department from one that focused on “impact teams” of officers who roamed rough neighborhoods looking to make arrests to one that required all officers to adopt a “community policing” model, which emphasizes relationship building.

“We had generations of families raised to hate and fear the Richmond police, and a lot of that was the result of our style of policing in the past. It took us a long time to turn that around, and we’re seeing the fruits of that now. There is a mutual respect now, and some mutual compassion.”’

the interview is pretty awesome if you want to watch it: http://ift.tt/29yFP9X

They also do regular officer trainings with roleplay scenarios and airsoft guns to teach them how to de-escalate, how to avoid firing when fired upon, and how to deal with people with weapons in a way that doesn’t end with a shootout.

They also apparently go through the details of officer-involved shootings elsewhere, picking them apart and using them as teaching tools for what NOT to do or what the officer could have done to avoid shooting the person.

Essentially, they take a proactive approach to not shooting people and put time, money, and effort into it. Richmond isn’t a low-crime area. Other cities could follow their model and almost certainly see results.

Who’d have thought it would take so much work to learn how to just … NOT shoot people

These are the sort of police officers who deserve respect.  The ones who take the time to build a relationship with the community they’re supposed to be protecting, and work to actually protect people instead of just shooting anyone who looked scary.

In before anyone tries to say that the only reason this works is because Richmond is probably like “not as bad” as other places in the US

I grew up here. I’m close to Richmond. It used to be one of the most dangerous cities in America. Literally. In 2006 it was #11 in the Most Dangerous Cities in America. 

Now? It doesn’t even break the top 100.

What changed? This guy became police chief in 2007.

IT’S SO FUCKING WEIRD HOW THAT WORKS! *looks pointedly at every other police force in America*
