    It Sparks My Anger

    I have worked with people in the past that were like this.  They made discreet comments, not specifically to my face but very much rude and made in regards to something that made it evident it was about me.  I prefer people that fully express what...

    Or Not So Subtle

    I've had some recent encounters in my work that have left some people, should I say "disenchanted" (that's putting it lightly) with me.  These people for the most part have gone through their lives doing what they want, thinking the rules of society don't apply to them.  They...
