My vision tends to get a bit blurry when I'm angry.
I try not to get very angry very often. Unfortunately I have a very short fuse and it has been a very long week.
Over the years, there have been many days I thought my office to be positioned directly over Hell, but throw in the record high temps, which really suck in the humid south), add a huge glass window in an old, non-insulated building with crappy ductwork and I quickly become quite certain that I am not only NEAR, but very much IN Hell.
Oh, and did I mention that I work for a REALLY shitty company?
I would like to think they don't TRY to be that shitty, but I no longer have any faith in that.
I try to assume the best of people, until I am proven wrong, but I am proven wrong so often.
I have a friend who looks at it a bit differently. She avoids being so disappointed in the failings of others by believing, not that everyone has an inner goodness, but that deep down people suck, so she is always pleasantly surprised when they don’t.
I’ve tried the cynical route and it really doesn’t work well for me.
So for now I'm going to go stew for a bit and sleep. Perhaps when I wake I will be calm and have a clearer understanding of how people find it so hard to do the right thing, even when the right thing seems so easy.
