Owner lost his keys. Found them. I told him to have a good night. As he’s LEAVING the office/building for the night he asks, “How can you work in the dark?!” He flips the big, overhead lights on and walks out. Surely he knows I’m just going to walk over there and turn them off. Just because he prefers blaring bright lights just like he prefers an entire bottle of cologne on himself doesn’t mean anyone else prefers those things…
I was going to reply to this post that Ebee made but it’s like a twitter post. There was NO WAY I was getting in all I wanted to say, so I will make my own post instead.
In most cases, reassuring statements don’t quite help like the speaker intends but the fact that they are spoken at all can be reassuring, so in the immortal words of Buffalo Springfield, For What It’s Worth…
Don’t waste your precious time on people that are jealous of you/angry that others have realized how awesome you are. If they really like you, they will be happy that others do as well.
You are way too kind to be dismissive to anyone but you definitely shouldn’t worry about what they think. Do what you can and if it’s not enough, it’s not something you should be invested in anyway.
At the risk of being a super sap, yet again, here’s a quote from A Thousand Country Roads about signs of maturity.
“The ability to grin in admiration at others’ accomplishments, instead of sulking in envy.”
So if they don’t admire you for your admirable qualities, they just haven’t matured yet.
That being said, I LOVE YOUR FACE! And I will now shut up and watch Harrison Barnes dominate the 3-point shot.
