When things other folk do look/sound good to you but they don’t fit your nature, you cannot change. I have one dear friend who would promise to be on the job at 8am, and not show up until noon. The reason he gave, “I got up this morning early, didn’t want to disturb you early, but I just felt like the bass would be hitting this morning. They were!”
I worked around him, he knew I would.
I have wished a hundred times I could be that laid back, and not so concerned about ‘THE JOB’. BUT I am not, and if I were to do that I would have the ‘missed appointment’ on my mind the whole time I was away. You cannot force yourself to be laid back!
I have a habit my mama had cooking. I do not measure all the ingredients in a recipe. I estimate a lot of things. Folks that are tied to a recipe would worry the entire time something was baking or cooking, just sure they had guessed wrong and the dish will be ruined, if they did not measure each thing exactly as called for. That is the best idea, I just don’t follow it. I could be lazy. LOL
When upset, I seldom say out loud what I really want to say. I try to remember ‘Once said, the words cannot be recalled.’ I know people who will in a heartbeat, give you a piece of their mind. Later they apologize and act like the incident never happened. I can forgive, but I cannot erase your mind.
One incident happened to me a couple months ago. I had a phone conversation (trying to talk on a phone keeps me in a strain). Things went south, as they say, as I talked to my son and I said something I should not have said. Immediately after the call, I sent a text apologizing.
I was working with grandson Josh later and mentioned that I had had an encounter I wasn’t proud of. He looked at me smiling and said, “I know Grandpa.”
“How do you Know?”
“You sent the message to me.”
Josh is tech savvy, even Microsoft approved officially. He took the time to show me how to readdress and forward the text.
Yeah, I hate it when I am stupid, then get caught for being ignorant. OUCH, it is hard to teach an old dog a new trick.
Have you ever sent a text or message to the wrong person?
Your teeth start growing 6 months before you are born. This is why one out of every 2,000 newborn infants has a tooth when they are born.
