I’m probably stealing this line of thought from somewhere else so please forgive my inability to cite source but its something I’ve been thinking a lot lately and I think its kind of my motto or catch phrase.
I’m generally a patient person. A co-worker told a customer that it takes a heck of a lot to get a substantial reaction from me (however she worded it “its hard to piss her off”). However there are some days where I have a “shorter fuse” and it takes a whole lot less to ruffle my feathers. However I refuse to see it as “being grumpy” or “in a bad mood”. How I see it? That particular day (and here’s where the plagiarizing someone else’s words comes in) I have a lower tolerance for stupid. Whereas most days I’m biting my tung and assessing the situation much more thoroughly before I act or say anything. However there are of course those days where I am far less generous and you are going to hear exactly what I think of you and what you just did. Just sayin’
Also, if you screw up? Over-appologising is not going to help with people like me. It just adds more frustration. Just apologize once as needed, step out of the way and let me clean up your mess. I have to remember this all the time when roles are reversed because I have a tendency to do the same thing. A situation like this came up today and the person just wouldn’t stop talking… saying sorry, making excuses, and apologizing profusely and it wasn’t even a big deal. It got to the point where I wanted to say “shut up, get out of the way, and let me fix it.” Then after I fixed it they kept talking and I’m just like “situation resolved. you’re fine, move on”
I feel like I could have said all of this in a lot less words. Didn’t actually mean to write so much on the subject lol. Perhaps I’m in an analytical mood hahaha. Ok… done.
