I am one step away from gooi'ing the stapler. From telling the person what I really think of them, their work ethic and the project they are supposed to be managing. One tiny toe inch away from losing the inspiration with & passion for this job and career. And if you don't have passion, you're as bad as them. You may as well give up & let the fuck ups slide over.
But then what and to where? ....if ever there was a thought that scared me into deer-in-the-headlight inaction!
I am so sick of hearing the daily words of "race" and "crime" and all of it in the overdramatic sensational newspapers. Fuck all discussion or asking "And how are we going to heal" than there is finger pointing and soap-style explanations. Were newspapers always this ridiculous and amateur & I just grew out of them?
Were 3/4s of our country's employers and employees always so lacking in professionalism and challenge? High school was so good for so many, it seems, that they feel no need to grow out of it. We all feel so important. So self-important. Perhaps because we all know the reality - put most of us on a world stage, and we'd freeze in those theatre lights. We'd be working the water cooler for the chorus line.
Or would we? Maybe if we just tried - a hint of professionalism, a dash of thinking out of the stereotypes picked up on chat shows, a release of childish ways, a dabble of humility, instead of covering up our fear with self-important delegating. Maybe we could move up.
Maybe if we refocused the light off the deer, the deer could show itself for what it really is.
