“You’re not perfect and neither am I. Don’t bite my head off when you do it yourself.”
The thing about work related issue between friends is that one way or another, you’re both going to step on each others toes for mistakes that are both inconsequential and serious to both of you. The best way to handle things is always to shut up and listen. Sometimes though some conditions and situation don’t allow you that solution and things take the turn for the worse.
I don’t like it when people give me the third degree for mistakes that I do. I never have liked it and I never will. Under normal circumstances, I’d just take and swallow it like a soldier. Though some conditions yet unresolved can easily undo the fine self-control you’ve been building to keep the anger and other emotions at bay, especially at close friends who are the ones giving you the third degree. I don’t like being angry and I think neither do a lot of people. I need to put back my self control and fast before things degrade to the point of no return.
In the common workplace, there is no room for mismatched high strung emotions. I can only hope I can keep it under control before I break a board or my hand.
