Proper Bitching

Standard

Instructive Creative Writing:
Proper Bitching

You’ve agreed to meet somebody 15 minutes from your home, you start early to make sure you are there when they are.
Over time, the occasional tardiness due to traffic, lights etc. is expected and met with understanding.
In more time, you notice the irregularity in their arrival times growing from five minutes to seven minutes until one day, after waiting twenty minutes, you call to make sure they weren’t in an accident.
The phone call comes back, “We’re on our way!”
Ten minutes later they arrive.
I waved, received my passenger, and drove away.
I was in no mood for conversation.
There are occasions when, if I had bitched, let’s say at the 15 minute mark, this 30 minute late mark, wouldn’t have happened!
Being nice and patient with people is a good thing … until it isn’t.
Sometimes I practice the art of ‘shut up’ and other tactical things that work to my advantage …, but in that bag, I have a special place for ‘Proper Bitching’!
When done right, it saves embarrassment, time, hard feelings, and mis-trust, far outweighing the mistake.
Having said that, I need to mention the nooooomerous times I hear them remark back “What’s amatter with him? He’s never like that!”
LOLOLOL … Yes I am! You just pushed too far. rdd

Houses Built on the Grains of Lies (comment)

Standard

Even though the truth is documented and witnessed, over half of the people insist on living within, and passing laws that credit lies, so that the heart of the weak and the pocketbook greedy may be satisfied.
As long as we live in a untruth oriented life…. our human troubles will increase outside those of nature that we may not be able to prevent. (Even the cost of raging nature can be made worse by those ignoring or lying about what can be done) Ronald Douglas Drobeck
