We all have a hard time with letting things go that we have no control over from time to time. Yesterday afternoon something happened that irked me even into the night. I woke up thinking I could of said this or that. I was talked down to over the phone while trying to explain a process that I’ve known for over 6 years. I was also told I wasn’t articulating what was needed even though I explained what this person needed to do three different ways. I was then laughed at and told “no I’m telling you what you need to do. I don’t need to do anything.” I was so upset I just said “I’ll handle internally!” and hung up on this person. I told my boss very loudly “that guy was such a dickhead!” For one, I rarely cuss at work and usually keep my cool but this was a rare moment that I could not.
My face on the phone and the look on my entire team on the floor when I exploded..
Definition of Articulate:
My expressive language after the call was very clearly understood.. 🤭
I’m a Capricorn, have trouble letting things go and stubborn in my ways. I’ve decided today I can’t fix it and maybe we just were not understanding each other due different verbiage used.. I’m trying to let it go and will await the Team handling this escalation to provide their feedback.
Here’s to changing my mindset and to a lovely long weekend!! 💖
