I just about ran smack into a car today.
Not that it wasn’t obvious enough – a big dark red jeep-branded being. But the fact I had my nose tunneled into my mobile trying to write a text probably didn’t help… or that I couldn’t see past my fire-flaming eyes.
Well, you see, while leaving work with a friend, he happened to refer to something that is a bit of a sore spot. It’s something I’ve frequently dropped hints about, but never really vented my true feelings about very much.
The actual offending event happened while I was still very new to the team but it still has repercussions now, meaning I’m still reminded about how it bothers me. I think at the time I just didn’t know everyone so well, so although I did make known how I felt, I never really “pushed” it very much, just said my piece and let it go.
So then today I was just leading up to full getting-it-off-my-chest mode when someone without the correct security clearance joined us on our common medium of travel. Oh, he’s a decent enough bloke, just not currently in the relevant clique, I suppose.
So yeah, I was fuming, and wanting to talk about my fumes, and had a willing ear to lap up such fumes… but, grr, I couldn’t allow Eve to get a-hold of any of my fumes! Maybe I should have transferred them a single photon at a time…
Maybe I should just “forget about it”!
