When All I Want To Do Is Tear Someone's Face Off

Ever felt like that? I know the title elicits a graphic, mental image.

Ever get SO sick of being the "bigger" person? Minding your business? Letting things roll off your back? Turning the other cheek? Waiting patiently for some tool to "get theirs"?

Me too.

I know it's the right thing to do, but sometimes seeing some immediate gratification is all I want. Seeing that smug grin punched wiped off someone's face.

How do so many ignorant people survive in this world? Worse--how do they thrive?

I stumbled across a webpage today for a consulting business owned by the people who let Joe go. It's a consulting business all about holding the employees in high esteem and-- they are offering to TEACH OTHER MANAGERS HOW TO HOLD THEIR EMPLOYEES IN HIGH REGARD. What a joke. The clincher? Here's an excerpt from their website:

"We Encourage Family Participation - Shows the Employee That You Also Care About Their Family"

I don't know whether to laugh or explode with rage. I can tell you FIRST HAND that this company doesn't give ONE RIP about your family. Their biggest concern? The bottom line. The Benjamins. End of story.

Or maybe I'm wrong.

Maybe I live on some alternate planet where people actually care for each other.

I know what goes around comes around. I don't believe in "karma" per se, but I do believe that we reap what we sow--good or bad. It will happen. Maybe it's wrong that I hope I'm there to see it.

One good thing...it does make me more conscious of how I treat others.


And...that is all for today.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming...
