Sometimes the Real Me Comes Out
I try to use my filter most of the time. I really do. But sometimes the filter breaks. It’s usually when I am tired. The filter just breaks off and the real me just lets loose. It can be good or bad. In the last couple of days it was not so good for a couple of other people. They thought they were going to spout off to me and boy they didn’t know what they were about to receive in return! When I finished with them, I left them with a jaw hanging on the floor.
Now before you start fussing at me saying I should be nice (or maybe I am channeling my mother’s lectures from when I was a kid that I always had to be nice even when others were being horrible to me), let me just say these people knew the amount of stress I was under and they are the ones that decided to poke the bear. They took the risk knowingly! Then the bear growled and even nipped a time or two and you’d think I was the most evil person on earth. I did tell one of them that they better be glad I had some restraint because there were many more things I could have said but I chose to be semi-civil.
The moral of the story is to not poke bears if you aren’t ready for a bite. People and animals can only take so much. If you catch them at the wrong moment, you might get more than you bargained for. And if you give negativity on purpose, then be prepared for it to be given back in equal or greater measure.
