An innocent victim

Today I was struggling with anger again. I almost had myself fooled into thinking I was getting over my angry spell.

Today my boss thanked me and told me how easy I made his life. He does this a lot.

Today I ran my boss down in the presence of other people on more then one occasion.

Today my boss let me do what I wanted to do. Granted, there was some routine work that he knew that I would get done. There was an “emergency” that he asked me to look into. And there was few other little things. But for the most part, I decided what I wanted to do with the day. And my boss did not question the decisions I made. Most days are like that for me.

Today I snapped at my boss. His crime was not paying enough attention to me.

Earlier, he had told me that he was going to call a certain person for technical help. I told him that he would not be able to get a hold of that certain person and I explained why. Half an hour later he comes to me and tells me that he was not able to get a hold of that certain person.

After I snapped at my boss he told me he needed to get me the book on the verbal art of self defense. It is his way of mildly rebuking me when ever he feels that I am beating up on him excessively (and he puts up with a lot).

My gracious response was to say that some people are so thick that you need to write out what you are trying to say on a coal shovel and hit them over the head with it.

My boss was trying to call that certain person because he was trying to get a job done that he should have had me do. The reason that he did not give it to me to do is because he thinks he asks too much of me as it is.

He is wrong.
