This ain't cool …

There are not many instances that I lose my cool in office. I have cried often when I have performed bad , or felt hurt by some one’s remarks , but never had I replied back in such scenarios. One thing that I absolutely can not let go though is personal insult or allegations. I am not very rigid person but when pitted against some one who only wants to prove his ego the reason for all actions, I have realized I have a bigger ego and stubbornness in such moments , not that I am particularly proud of this.
What I fail to understand and accept is colossal disregard to professional etiquette and more than that , the tendency to NOT follow processes. Processes are there to help people know the best way to deal with any situation and to avoid chaos of any and all kinds. When some one can not respect that , I judge him already. Add to that , the fight to prove himself right in all ways is as much as my flaw , it is unpardonable in people who argue without concern.
I have learned to be gracious and agile with such great effort , and yet breaking that habit becomes a necessity some days. Guess , the lessons are not so much ingrained in me as I thought 😉
Hopefully tomorrow would be a different and better day.
I could so much use some positive vibes to keep my cool next time , I feel like banging my head into a wall or some one who acts like one.
Hope your week going better !
Love,
P

Point is ? 

Story part 1

“Damn! What was I thinking” she cursed aloud as soon as she hit the send button on that email. But she was not going to write another email to explain , that was made sure by the call from the security desk. Her cab and gaurd were waiting fir her. She closed her laptop and ran out of the office. The friday had acted like monday but the weekend showed some hopes.
She made sure to hide her office phone over the weekend so she would not feel obliged to check emails or provide any updates on the issues. Monday morning, while in the cab she put the emails to sync and scrolled through to the bottom. The unknown sender has replied ,

Good try. I was not working , and why do you think I would meet strangers when I advised you against it ?
PS: Not that i would mind meeting you to hear your poetry in your own voice
PPS: did you really want to meet ? Just to prove a point ?

This was way out of proprtion, she mused. Time to set some thing straight …

Wellwisher 

​She was again  the last one to be working and it was too late to go home alone. Just then she saw another email arrive in the inbox. No subject , unknown sender; she would usually delete such emails but  today was too tired to process it. Wishing it not be another defect to be fixed “ASAP”, she opened it. 

Nice blog. But is it safe to meet strangers as you did on weekend ?
~ A wellwisher

Well , for whatever reason, Some one did think of her. She smiled at the thought and hit reply 

What is the wellwisher doing so late at work ? Care to drop me home, stranger ? 

(To be continued when I get time to think about the stranger or the wellwisher .. )
