Rantglass - because that's how things are.

I object.

Right. So, it finally has to come to this.

The higher you are, the harder you fall. That is when your good deeds go unnoticed as they become one with the air, and your flaws hung out to dry like dirty laundry on a sunny day.

It has taken this long to make me shed tears of frustration and entertain thoughts of throwing in the towel.

Well. There always has to be a first time, eh?

The work gets done – right and on time – and the customers are happy. But know that this is not enough, for next up on the agenda is a fake big grin, red clown boots, and plenty of pretentious conversations.

I have always been fine where I am. Until today, that is, when I am told to be a stranger to myself. They call this self-development; I call it suicide.

Expectations will always be the death of me.

  1. You have my sympathy. I think I can recognise that general situation.

    For a long time I have been intending to recommend a blog to you. When I first read it, it reminded me a lot of your writing style, so I imagined you might like it. But maybe that isn’t logical. He writes a variety of posts from the factual to the geeky, from personal thoughts to guidebook stuff about London.

    This recent post, http://diamondgeezer.blogspot.com/ 2009_07_01_archive.html#4258919033811079297, might or might not be relevant to your current situation, but something tells me his dilemma will resonate with you.

    I hope your task turns out not to be as onerous a prospect as it seems now.

  2. Tim – Apparently I was feeling so depressed yesterday, I didn’t even notice one glaring spelling error in my entry. (sniff)

    Checking out that link now – and thank you for always being here to hear me out!

    Sigh, I hate office politics. There’s just no escaping it.
