I've Become Jaded

I've always been a bit snarky and sarcastic, although not as much as Klund or Mean Mr. Mustard. I try to make sure that I don't get into the habit of projecting my negative thoughts and presumptions on others because I know it can become a habit, and it's not a good habit if you're a manager (although I'm well aware of managers who got in the habit). But today I was on the elevator and a woman started talking about how it was daylight savings time and she found herself frantically reaching for her alarm.

A little voice inside my head was screaming, "Cat lady! CAT LADY!"

And she followed up with, "Poor little guy..."

At which point I was hoping she'd tumbled a child onto the floor.

"He went mew,mew, mewwwwww..."
