Trickle Down Theory

Those of you who know me are aware that I am not a sugar coat the situation type of gal. If I have something to say, depending upon the urgency of the situation, I will spell it out precisely. I have no time for the let’s beat around the bush and hope the parties involved will get it eventually tactic. Similarly, if I need the point to be taken I can be caustic. I don’t typically use the caustic approach but when I do, it’s just not pretty. There, in public, I admit that I have flaws. We all have them, not all of us will admit them.

Which brings me to something that happened recently which has been blown completely out of proportion by the receiving party. I won’t get into specifics. I will share that what I said was in my typical here is the problem and let’s please fix it promptly fashion. What ensued is hilarious. A melt down of epic dimensions; a full blown hissy fit.

To which I say, grow up. If you can’t stand the heat, admit you made a minor mistake which I pointed out to only the parties involved, get the hell out of the kitchen. Life is too damn short. Note to hissy fitter, thanks for pointing out the exact button I now will gladly push if driven to that point.

Have a nice day!

For the love of GOD. I didn't think you worked in a Day Care Center.

You think hissy fitter got the clue?

Well. As I read your first paragraph, it sure read familiar to me. "Caustic" ... a girl after my own heart. (stands, raises hand in sheepish guilt) I have been accused of being quite caustic in my day as well. I think I'd rather be caustic and open in the name of airing out the laundry than all pent up with frustration and angst.

On the other hand ... even I will admit that on rare occasion, I've gone over the top and have had to suck up and apologize. Every situation differs and it needs to be handled according to circumstances.

Go you ! for getting your thang said and put into print.

Dave: I am shocked.

Phillip: One would need a brain to accomplish that. A day Care Center is sounding better and better.

Haglette: I know we were separated at birth.

Sorry this happened to you – I hate when you try to approach something in a healthy way and it backfires. Stupid interpersonal interaction.
