To quote Jimmy Dugan in A League of Their Own, ” It’s supposed to be hard. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. The hard…is what makes it great.”
We all work with that one person who just doesn’t work. It’s been my experience that this person, usually peaked in high school, and somehow the world owes them a favor. You can easily pick this person out as the one who talks the loudest, thinks the are the smartest and usually believes they are the center of the universe.
I’ll admit I’m generally in an annoyed state of mind but that guy just drives me nuts. I said something brutally honest to that guy at work last week, and he accused me of being sarcastic which by definition is the use of words that mean the opposite of what you really want to say especially in order to insult someone, to show irritation, or to be funny. That is the great thing about him he somehow also deflects and never realized he isn’t doing his part. There is always a great reason (read BS story) or explanation. I guess this takes us back to the hard part, work and life isn’t always that hard but some folks just can’t or won’t put in the effort. It’s a shame so many folks in life want the opportunity to work hard and get ahead yet so many have the opportunity to work hard, do right and succeed but are simply there.
*Disclaimer – there are plenty of that gals that have these horrible characteristics but I currently am forced to work with the male version.
