One member feels that he has to save face ’cause I called him on a comment he really shouldn’t have made. I personally could give a shit, but I do agree that I shouldn’t have called him on it publicly. I’ll admit to making an error in judgment, but he never will.
That “face” and reputation thing again. I stake my rep on my actions, my ability to get along with other people, and know what to say when. I suppose there’s a maturity issue here somewhere, and probably some deeper issues.
So once again I have to smooth ruffled feathers, take the time to explain where I’m coming from, and act as peacemaker, since compromise isn’t part of this person’s vocabulary.
So, yeah, my fears from May are basically coming true. And who will adapt to the situation? Three guesses, and the first two don’t count.
And if this becomes a monthly event, I’ll probably resign in disgust by December. As it is, May ’03 looks a lot further away than it did yesterday…
