I fully understand.

Sometimes a paying job requires you to eat some insults.

"Erase"... that word again. (Just like with the dog.)

Coincidental word choice, euphemism for death, or ability hint?

Calling it now...
She wants to get rid off talking cat menace that will outsmart the Mastermind just long enough to seek Burk's protection.

Customer service just be this way.

Did not notice Evyle is missing an arm until the last few pages. She should meet up with Tobi. Wasn’t she inventing some kind of replacement hand/arm for her friend?

Lemme get this straight; instead of going to Evyle's office, you decided to have a discussion about the possibility of erasing someone in a crowded restaurant? The upper-class inbreeding is strong within this one... Well, let's see who/what this "someone" who she wouldn't want to call "a person" is. Let's see if this is going to get as dehumanizing as I'm beginning to suspect it is...

Interesting that she can feign some decency.

I guess it's kinda impressive, sorta like hearing a great singer who's deaf, or seeing a greater signer who's blind. I mean, deafness doesn't stop someone from singing nor does blindness stop someone from signing, but such disabilities would seem to make learning those skills far more difficult.

Likewise, Evyle seems like she's got a major emotional disability that'd seem to make social grace difficult for her; that she could muster a bit would seem to suggest that there might be something positive hidden in there, somewhere..

@Storm: I just figured she hated, well going by the Evyle facts, everything except rainy days. That isn't a disability, as she obviously can show social grace but does not want to most of the time.

@Storm you'd think that, but sociopaths- that being the word for someone who simply doesn't have he inherent human connection- often end up *better* at social skills. Or autistic folk who have empathy but terrible natural interaction ability. The reason for this is quite simple- they *know* their social skills are shite, and so they learn them the hard way, by rote, by practice, and above all, by effort. The same goes for any skill really, the effort to overcome a disability will often lead to becoming better than a true talent.

"I wouldn't call it a person, rather it is my dog, I mean look at that thing."

@mikatio1, So true, as an autistic person, communicating can sometimes feel as if there is a river between me and the person I'm talking to.

On the other talon, sometimes being paid an insult requires you to eat some clients.

22124: Nobody - Tuesday, May 26 2020 - 12:27 AM

@mikato1 That works, until you end up in a situation that you're not familiar with. People with empathy will typically understand what they other person feels, though their response can still be terrible. People without empathy... they tend to be utterly lost and their reactions tend to be very 'flat'.
