Do you make excuses?
April 18, 2017

Someone steps on your toe. It not only hurts like hell, but on closer examination the toe appears to be broken. You look up, and -- only because you’re writhing in pain -- you share how much you’re hurting.

The person who stepped on your toe says the following: “I’m sorry, but how was I supposed to avoid it? You were in my way!” Or, “If you would’ve been standing even a half an inch to the left this never would’ve happened!”

Feel better?

Didn’t think so!

And yes, I’m speaking metaphorically. But this kind of thing happens all the time.
