Martial tales...

When to shout (and when not to shout)

Today, I have shouted at quite a few people...for which I make no apology - they needed shouting at. I like to keep an even keel - when in conflict or crisis, at least one party has to remain calm and rational - two dogs barking are never going to resolve anything! But today, I have shouted - not as a reaction to conflict or crisis, but as a result of inane stupidity. Now, we all have a dose of stupid from time to time, but when it's stupidity that costs me time, I get a bit cross - time is the one thing I value above all else. You can't 'make' time. You can't 'find' time - no-one ever went to their cupboard and said, 'Oh, look - there's a couple of tins of time in here...shall we open one?' Time is precious - when it's gone, it's gone - so use it wisely. I will not spend my precious time answering the same question 4 times, sending the same document 3 times, or explaining how the system works...especially when it's that stupid person's own system - just to hear them say, 'Oh, yeah..'

Anyway, enough with the shouting. My normal state of calm has been restored and all is well at the camp...night, all....x
