He says Canada is doing quite well with the movement of highly skilled workers out of the US.

She hung up again after I asked her for her number which she couldnt give and my caller ID had a number with way too many digits. Still, it breaks the monotony of my job atm.
    I've been getting a shitload of calls about my student loan. Currently I don't have a student loan. I had one about 30 years ago and paid it all back promptly. But they want to help me - possibly even have the entire thing forgiven. I haven't answered the phone yet, it just goes to voicemail which gets converted to a text message. I subsequently block the number. They call back from a different number. I block, repeat daily. I suppose I will have to resort to what I did a year or two back - answer the fucking phone, act extremely interested, and then ask if I will be able to get a refund on the loan I paid off 29 fucking years ago. They were rude and just hung up on me the last time I did that.

    One of my public servants is looking into that for me. I've asked for something in mauve.
