I am getting increasingly short-tempered with my mom. I love her, no, I adore her. However her constant nagging and self-pity are driving me up the wall.
Typical of me, I keep quite and ignore until I cannot take it anymore, then I blow up- and she wonders what happened poor thing. Then she gets upset and I get more upset.
I am facing more and more colleagues who feel a high, though misguided sense of entitlement. they go about bossing everyone or expecting others to do their work. Such an incident happened a few hours ago
Colleague: A, the link to the website is wrong
Me (A): You mean this link? This was given by B, who is in your team
Colleague: How can he give you the link? He is so new
Me (A): Well I presume he would have liaised with you guys. Anyway we have C’s approval
Colleague: Well it’s wrong
Me: Can you guys as a team discuss what link you want put up and let me know?
Colleague: Love, am trying to help you….that’s the link I gave!
Me: I got the new link you gave but is the team OK with it?
Colleague: Love, am trying to help you! Anyway, it’s not my business. I have urgent work. Bye
Now…what was that about???
