Maybe I Need To Take A Leaf Out Of Their Book

As seen on on Life in Publishing, a site discovered via Rose Powell on Twitter. It’s the kind of Tumblr that makes me joyous in all the flawed, knowing and cynical ways life does and I know I perhaps shouldn’t let it but damn it feels okay sometimes.

    There is a fine line still, be strong and confident, but not rude.
    To be honest when there’s a problem at work I’ll work harder for the calm and reasonable person than the person who screams and swears at me. I will do the bare minimum for the ‘bitch’ (or male equivalent) because I just want them the heck out of my store. The nicer calmer person I will try to make happy so they will come back to the store again because I want to keep their custom, so I will do extra things, see if there are other things I can do or add on to make them feel better. I don’t want jerks back though, so it’s solve the problem then boot them out. I can’t imagine I’m the only person who does this either, so while the bitch gets stuff done, the strong but reasonable person might get bonuses as well as getting stuff done.
    Sorry for the long comment I’m a little passionate about the topic.

      Oh, I think there needs to be a line too! I’ve walked the high road many, many a time. In this instance I was thinking more of an internal mindset, a strong-willed-ness I’ve been (frankly) lacking lately!
