Something is off

I haven't even gotten so much as a single warning yet.

Either I am off or something has really changed about this place since last time I was here.

I have yet to get a warning.

Does that mean I'm too timid?

Yeah, I feel better now.

I can't believe someone took that as political. Apparently there really are people against hard work.

There are people against everything. You can offend some of the people all of the time just by existing.
