What kind of story am I?

You know how it goes . . . you finish your day at work and EVERYONE bugged you and EVERYBODY ELSE is an idiot. And it’s not just a feeling – they really DID ask some dim-witted questions and made some bonehead decisions. Your friends confirm that by their reactions as you re-tell the tales.

Seriously, how do some of these people survive the drive into work each day? I really wonder. You would think the basic functions of an alarm clock would hinder their arrival time (in some cases, I believe it does). I have a friend who works in the event audio/visual industry and SHE has some doozy stories!

But then as I go through my evening calls – or sit around a table with friends over a bottle of wine – I realize that we ALL have these crazy stories. Is it just because we’re all in management level jobs – is it because I only surround myself with people who are RIGHT in a world surrounded by wrong? ha! Or is it possible that maybe we’re NOT the always-right heroes in our co-workers stories after hours. Am I the only one who sees this cape I wear?

It really makes me wonder what role I play in their stories (if any) and how the same day can be so different to so many people. I mean, I’m fully aware that I can be a ding-a-ling so I wouldn’t be surprised if I came out a little low in a few stories . . . but overall, I wonder where I stand? Where do you think YOU stand?

Oh! I never thought about my place in someone else's story. That's a little scary. I'm sure I'm in some doozies.

I know! Makes me wonder, too! For some reason I feel the word "crazy" is used a lot in my case . . .
