It is said that confession is good for the soul. In that spirit, I’m embracing #HappyFestivus this year.
As is part of its tradition, I’m airing my top ten grievances. I’ve got a problem with some people:
People spend too much at the holidays and too little time with the people receiving the gift
People who don’t watch their kids in public
People who sit in the handicap section on mass transit and refuse to give up heir seat to the disabled, elderly or pregnant.
People who only contact you through social media but think they’re a true friend
People who don’t call or visit loved ones but are the first to “pay their respects” and cry when they die.
People who ask you a question but don’t really listen to the answer because they want to talk about themselves
People who don’t see their own faults but point out, what they perceive to be, the shortcomings of others. Those same people find it hard to forgive even when they often require forgiveness themselves
People who text and walk or drive but don’t pay attention to their surroundings
People who talk loudly on phones in public places
People who spend thousands to look good on the outside but don’t take care of their health.
And, personally, I’m upset with myself for doing too much work, above my job scope with too little help, to ensure the best product while accepting less pay or respect for it than I deserve
