Mom puts on her big girl panties

When I worked at America West I used to fire people ...........a lot. It never really phased me. I was super good at , "hey this is all you and not me." which is actually mature in nature. It is ideal to be able to not let others happiness affect mine. It is ideal to understand that when someone is not performing their job duties they are the ones that determine whether or not they get to have a job. I GOT that.

10 Years later. I still get all of the above. The difference is I now sprinkle in the following:

1. People are super damaged
2. As a result of #1, they do bad because they feel bad
3. As a result of #2, they can be rude, unkind, and unmotivated
4. As a result of #3, they sabotage their employment

So sometimes it is not easy to be honest with someone that you know can't grasp their personal ownership in their life experiences. I know that if I were someone who liked to wash away feelings, I would be drinking for the next 12 days. Instead I am going to do the following, I am going to write some of the words that I prohibit you, my lovely offspring, from saying. ( I understand that you will be adults when I finally give this to you, so the damage of your mother capitalizing and writing these words will not occur)

SUCK, STUPID, IDIOT, HATE, SLACKS, CHUNKY, FART, CRAP (I can't stand slacks and chunky - seriously. Kim and I will text these words to each other once in awhile just to be annoying.)
