To The Person Whose Child I Treated Rudely

Wed, 2008-08-20 19:29

I can offer no excuse. Rudeness is a terrible way to deal with a situation. I do know that I tend to be direct by nature. I am often able to tone that down a bit especially when the person I am talking to does not know me well. It helps a lot that I do not allow myself to get angry very often.

I did let myself get angry at you. I flew hot when you winked your eye at me and suggested I let a certain rule slide. The rules I follow were put in place by the people I work for. These are hard working people who are trying to make a living and provide for their families. They trust me to make sure nobody takes unfair advantage of their hard work. I found out earlier this summer exactly how far I am willing to go to protect their interests, and it is scary.

I am sorry that your son suffered collateral damage in this. Young folks should be encouraged in their ventures. I believe that I did say something to that effect at the time. You would have done much better to back off and let him handle the situation, even if the result would have been the same.
