R.a.n.t. of week 07/04/04
*PLEASE NOTE - I recently found R.a.n.t. articles posted to an older website I once owned. I've decided to reprint them in my current run, but have decided to edit the articles. For comparisons sake, I've decided to run the unedited versions as well. In a way, it's kind of fun to see how my writing has changed in eight years.
One of the things that can really get my goat is when people get all bent out of shape for small or silly things. One example came this weekend with two of my sisters. I’m not using this space to side with either one of them because the problem was just between the two of them, but sometimes I think people allow little things to get out of control. I’m not saying I’m a push-over myself, but I hate to see people get upset, especially when one wants to resolve the situation amicably. I think in most cases I’d rather be wronged than to cause a rift in the family and/or friendship. I know most people cannot understand that, but people generally are good people and allow their pride to get in the way once a situation gets away from them. Maybe that’s why I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. Sometimes when I get wronged, I just chalk it off to them having a bad day, or maybe they just misunderstood something I said, (and that’s not very unusual). As far as my sisters are concerned, they seemed to resolve it so I’m proud of both of them. I just hope there is no residual from it, I hate when someone holds a grudge, hmmmmm I got my rant idea for next week.
