Damn but he's smooth

Just got the slickest turn-down I've ever received. Nice, actually; they don't *have* to be polite about it.

I presented my Bike House Trailer idea to the head of Community Outreach, and he thinks it's a *great* idea - as long as *he* doesn't have to do anything about it. So, looking at it from the positive perspective, I got forty minutes of free ego-boo.

I don't know if this sounds like I'm complaining, but I'm not. A wee bit ticked that I didn't persuade him to volunteer some of his resources to help, as I'm going to be working on one of *his* problems, but as it's clear *I'm* going to be proceeding anyway, he's just observing his own boundaries, conserving his own resources, and wishing me good luck. Okay.
