How To Win Friends & Influence... No One.I have a number of people in my circle who are not particularly well liked. In fact more than a few of them don't like each other. This is for various reasons. They know them, I know what I need to know, & I'm sure it wouldn't take long for the lay person to get the gist.
In my working life I spend more time than I care to in mediation between awkward people with unrealistic expectations of each other.
Do I come to EP for more of the same? No, I do not.
I have often thought that I should keep lollipops in my desk drawer to hand out when these sessions are over. Perhaps I should "design [my] own" lollipop gift to send to people here after they're done complaining also?
^^^ Yes, I am extremely irritated by this.
If you don't like the people in my circle that is your problem, not mine. They are all here for a reason & I do not have to explain myself to anyone.
If you're so upset by a particular persons presence in my Ep life then don't add me. It's that simple. I'm not going to be questioned by complete strangers as to who I choose to associate with!
Or, if you're already in & you don't like the company, then remove me. Again, so simple. Because if you know me so little as to imagine that I carry stories from one "side" to the other then where was our friendship to begin with?
I will not hear any more. I mean it! I've had enough. Instructions on what to do have been laid out clearly above...
