Things have been going well at work.  Stale Male Steve has been good lately.  He has stopped asking me to do secretarial stuff, coming to my cubicle to grouse about procedures I didn't create and have no ability to change, and so on.   His sense of humor, bad breath, and overall staleness have not improved at all, but I can overlook all of those things if he means well. 

All of the minions are chain smokers. I don't know if Milton Minion was a chain smoker before they hired him or if the other minions converted him. He attempted to speak to me in a complete sentence the other day! It's the most he's ever said to me. He became flustered and waddled away afterward, but it's progress.

I found discrepancies in drawings yesterday! I showed Engineer Ed what I had found and asked him whether it was correct and he looked over the drawings and said "You're right!"  and he made corrections to the drawings and took them to Boring Stories Bob. Then he came over and thanked me for finding the errors, and asked where I learned to read engineering drawings, and I told him that I didn't, and he said "well you just saved us a bunch of money", and I think his circuitry was trying to emulate gratitude and appreciation. I felt all warm and mushy inside.
