my problem with #patriarchy is not that men are on top, it's that there is a top at all

I have a really good memory for customers. If there's a regular at my store, chances are I know them by sight and name. But I'm very quiet and don't often use names even for friends/family. I just talk in their direction.
But I noticed people assume I don't know them. Even if I see them every day. And then they feel like I don't care, I'm just the person between them and their meds.
So I started greeting everyone I know by name this week. And WOW. I did not realize how much that meant to people, but apparently it's a lot and it completely turns those interactions around.
And I feel really good about it. It's nice making people smile a little.

I don't miss Facebook. The people I'm close with are on Signal and I keep tabs in a active, private way.
On FB, we passively keep tabs and no one really knows we care enough to pay attention to their lives. Comments often a battle of wills and ego rather than an opportunity to reach out.
My public life is now on public venues like Mastodon and Twitter where there is no illusion of privacy. I keep my secrets off those platforms.
For instance, I'm trying to convince a coworker to use a higher-ordered function to protect access to a value that needs to be locked.
