I Restrained but Didn't Want to.

Dear Mr. Think-You-Are-Way-Better-Than-Grandy;

I write this letter to you the day AFTER my f*ck you hangover wore off you decided it would make you feel better to open a can of "I'm a 45 year-old baby and am going to pee in the corner" attitude all into my business.

It has been a long time since Grandy has had to address such aggression over the phone. Your anger and pompous attitude was absolutely NUTS!! Have you considered anger management? Perhaps you should. Maybe your company offers some sort of psych eval.

You might remember how I mentioned my inclination to explode and say what is on my mind when feeling compelled to do so. Well maybe not, judging by the way you spoke to me as if I was your submissive whore.

Here's the deal. I was polite and civil to you over the phone for only one reason, my concern for my client. Well that, and I promised my boss I would really work on NOT dropping the F-Bomb at people...something about it keeping me from that ultimate VP title someday. When I apologized to you yesterday, it was NOT because I did something wrong. Quite the contrary actually. I apologized because I truly did not intend to hurt your feelings by trying to do my job.

So here are all the things I wanted to say to you, and was ready to say to you...but I'm better than you:

Boy, do I want the transcript of that conversation.

Jen said...

This is why learning a new language, an obscure language, is a good idea. That way you can say precisely what you want without worrying that they might actually understand you since it is clear they don't no matter what language you speak.

Hangovers? I stopped having those dec 17 1990.

You showed great restraint. I know it was difficult. Good for you.

Sometimes you just gotta let them have it, but kudos to you for staying cool.

Love my job. F-bombs are encouraged. Actually I tried to stop using them and my hubby agreed that working with the "boys" my language became way to foul. When I advised the "boys" I would be restraining myself I was met with a wall of resistance. they said "you can't do that you have to take one for the team. You need to "keep up the good work" aka word.

Love ya!

Good for you for showing restraint. Sometimes that can really suck the life out of you.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

I'm sure he's wondering why his ears are burning.

Grandy said...

Candy~ Are you sure? Perhaps I will post the conversation with my editorial thoughts in the margins.

Jen~ Yeah, you're right. Pig latin is far too easy nowadays. Uckfay Uyay Igpay!!

Mike~ Good for you! I didn't actually get to enjoy the benefits of what comes before the hangover I'm afraid.

Jibber Jabber~ Thanks girly!!

Grandy said...

Chris~ I wanted to let them have it...that's for sure. :)

Hasta~ Girl...I want your job! Without the physical take-downs that is. Not sure I'm strong enough to beat someone down like I used to be. I'm a sissy now, that's for sure.

Sandy~ So true.

Jenn~ I doubt he even gets that it would be him. I swear!!
