Hubris: noun meaning excessive pride or self-confidence; arrogance.
I would hazard to believe that some might consider blogging to be the height of this. After all, who are we that think our words so worthy that everyone just HAS to read them. I am not so self delusional to think that the world will stop spinning if my drops of wisdom are not released into the collective minds and interwebs of the world. And yet I am going to go right ahead and do so. Mostly because it is very therapeutic and better than going ape shit on some poor slob who just happens to say the wrong thing at the wrong time.
I do happen to know someone that is FULL of hubris. Full of a lot of stuff actually, but hubris is a stand out character trait. Shockingly enough, that would be Crazy. . . . Not only do I have my own personal stalker but she also feels the need to point out EVERYTHING that EVERYONE does wrong, because she can do it not only better, but THE RIGHT WAY. "My goodness, who are they hiring to do XYZ job these days?"
I am impressed with the testicular fortitude that she shows. THAT BEING SAID, if you are new to a group, you don't make friends with people by showing out to people. AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN. Being the person charged with steering crazy, well this is now making an already unpleasant job, down right arduous. Add to this, the people she seems compelled to tick off are of foreign nationality and due to cultural differences this is already a steaming battle ground of POO, the 'tude is doing me no favors.
I think I would rather gouge my eyes out with a rusty blunt butter knife that came directly out of ocean water than deal with her and her "Display My Ass" behavior daily. That might be the tropical vacation I keep dreaming of? Well maybe not, but it would beat the hell out of trying to mitigate her inane bull shit, At least I hope it would.
The upside of all of this is, I have some great items to share with people that are almost too great to be true!
