Sometimes they are people who work for us, and file grievances against us that we don't deserve, or they are the people we work for, scheduling meetings that interfere with necessary work our our personal lives.
Sometimes, they are people who live near us, and don't muffle their cars or pick up their trash or control their kids or their animals. (Need to vent? Try this.)
Sometimes, they are people who work with us, and steal our lunches or spread rumors or interrupte us constantly...or leave passive-aggressive notes around the workplace.
Sometimes, they are students that we teach, who disrupt the classroom and nearly ever lesson we try to teach.
aggravate - - - irritate - - - instigate.
They make us hate our jobs or neighborhoods. They make us cranky and consider moving or quitting. We stomp home in a bad mood. Yell at the spouse. Kick the cat.
we need them.
We need them so that, when they FINALLY move , or switch schools, or get another job, we can really appreciate how sweet life is.
Oh, yeah, baby. Sweeeeeeet!
And that's all I'm going to say about that.
