Another short snippet about work that isn't really - I'm finding it really bizarre how I'm inexplicably the most difficult man on the planet to define, at least in a political context. During the course of such friendly political discussion my brother is fond of teasing me by calling me a right-wing neocon asshole (though I'm not sure if the tables have turned now that he passionately supported Republican
Ron Paul whereas I was solidly behind Democratic
Barack Obama). Similarly, I've noticed that my fellow SysAdmin at work is increasingly referring to me as a bleeding-heart liberal douchebag...in the friendliest interpretation possible, of course.
I laugh it off, taking no offense. We make that kind of small talk over coffee while waiting for the first tickets of the day to be logged into the database, and he's the sort that's not shy about sharing what he thinks. Pretty much just comes right out and says it. Though it amuses me to no end how one person can be thought of in two such conflicting viewpoints.
