On the other hand, the other choices are B. running the chute, or C. pushing everything down the alley. Option B requires brute strength, quickness, and attention to detail: "Catch this one, she needs a shot. Careful, she's crazy and might try to knock your head off so stay back! Don't let her go!!" Guess I will pass on that too... which leaves option C; my personal favorite of them all. I know what I have to do, and don't usually have anyone breathing down my neck about it or hollering "WHOA! STOP THAT CRAZY blankety-blank-blank (I'll let you fill in the blanks). With little direction from the old boss man, I can go do my job and all I really have to worry about is not getting kicked or run over. Usually pretty easy to do.
We all need to work on our communication skills. Whether at work or within our own homes. Sometimes all it takes is putting down the cell phone, the tablet, or the newspaper and stopping to look at someone when they talk. Ask intelligent questions. Because no one has all the answers, but we all have different experiences and ideas that can put to use for the greater good. Don't be the guy peeing into the wind. That's disgusting, and not very bright; although, if you get caught doing that, you will probably never get asked to be the gate man!
Until next time,
