Releasing the Hounds

I was asked what do you think about x? I gave a candid opinion that was anything but favorable. Now x is a reality. I feel set up. Boy am I screwed.

Time to go back into my shell. I’m so embarrassed. See you again when I’m 99.

  1. I answered this question honestly one time. Never again. “What do you think of me?” From now on, I either lie, or I say, “That is none of your business” and walk away.
    Last time I heard, “Bill, what do you think?” I asked, “Are you sure you want to know?” They said yes. Ain’t laid eyes on ’em since. πŸ™‚
    A true gentleman never hurts someone’s feelings by accident.


  2. Oh yeah. Been there, done that. It’s a hard lesson to learn. I must admit, I’m more accepted at this job than any other in many years, but even still, I’ve got to be wary. I’m so random and blunt at times, best I keep quiet or play coy now and again.
    “What do you think of x?”
    “I’ve been thinking about it, and there seem to be some challenges along with the possibilities, what do you think?” Bosses love to talk about what THEY think πŸ˜‰ LOL
    Maybe, just maybe at some point you’ll have the opportunity to lie through your teeth and say how much better x is than you’d initially thought and add something like, “Good call.” Ugh. Hugs, Jilly.

    1. What makes it worse is I know better but still got sucked in. I really thought he wanted my opinion.

      Oh man to lie through my teeth would be awesome. I can just picture it. Playing up to his ego. β€œGood Call” might just work.

      It was all I could do to make it through the day. But I’m home and safe and plotting my pity party. #free48
