Now maybe there are people who like this sort of thing, but I am most definitely not one of them!
Normally anything giving off so much as the faintest whiff of ‘politics’ has me cowering in a corner. So when office politics reared its ugly head today, my first reaction was feeling sick…
Then rashness, regret, confusion.
Then frustration… as I realised all my desire to avoid the bullet had made me blind to what was happening between my shaking fingers – I’d loaded up five barrels-full!
And the worst was, I couldn’t remember if I’d loaded up the sixth one too.
So, surprisingly enough, I ended up with a bullet in me… after one agonisingly awkward wait, in the hope I could avoid it!
And then the aftermath: the offer to have the bullet sortof half taken out did not exactly put a smile on my face. Kind as the offer was, I couldn’t pretend to be overjoyed at it.
So… bit of a bad day in the office, I suppose!
But, all’s well that ends well!
