You have had a hard day at work and you get a seat on mass transit looking forward to relaxing on your way home. Wrong! You have to listen to some Rhodes Sholar blabbing loudly on their cellphone about some inane crap. Are ther really not in touch with what they are doing are do they just don't care? I'm guessing that most of us wouldn't do that sort of thing but just how aware are we? I sit next to the door in my office and 95 percent of the people here let the door slam loudly without a second thought . Some days it drives me crazy. A friend told me that it isn't the door the irratates me as much as the idea that people are not showing me respect. Yup that's it alright, now that I know this I have a lot easier time of dealing with it. I don't need to take it personal, people just aren't paying attention. If I didn't sit here I might not notice either. I wonder how many things I do like this that I am not aware of? At least the things my wife hasn't told me about yet. A note to all you fixer uppers. I'm not looking for help dealing with the slamming door but thank you for your suggestions anyway.
