Coffeypot has a funny post on, “Reasons I Was Sent to Sensitivity Training” at
Brings to mind a past experience.
Going over my commission settlement statement, I found an A/R for $526.00. Went to my boss.
“Dan, how come I have this $526.00 deduct on my washout check?”
“Rich (the owner) thinks you need Anger Management classes,” Dan replied. “That is the cost of the classes.”
About three weeks later Rich comes up to me. “Tank,” says he, “When are you going to your Anger Management classes?”
“Shit, Rich,” was my reply. “I thought I had to pay for the classes. I didn’t know I had to attend them.”
His response wasn’t positive. He went storming off waving his arms and making noises.
Sometimes life just isn’t fair. Pick up one asshole and toss him in a dumpster, and suddenly people think you have an anger problem. To be fair to Rich, there may have been other incidental incidents where feathers were ruffled.
Never did go to the classes.
