Runes and Rhinestones

I'm a modern day Viking, navigating my way through a stormy sea of stuff.

Bossy.

on August 13, 2015

Since when did being decisive become “bossy”?
I have a problem. I am naturally assertive, confident and capable. I am not often a retiring wallflower, and I wear my heart on my sleeve.
These traits do not a good waitress make. Or a good employee I guess. I am hurt that I was called bossy. I am hurt that I’m being told that being myself adds to an “unsettling” environment.
I work in a high paced environment. I see problems, I try to solve them. I tend to do that at high speed and I know that can be a bit abrupt.
What upsets me is that I am the one who has to make allowances. I am the one who has to change the way I am. I am the one that other people don’t have to make an effort to be on my level. People who do work at my level don’t get offended or upset, so at least there’s that.
My attitude is to get the job done – work first, play later. I am incredibly focused on getting the work done, and I can’t understand people who don’t do the same, particularly in a customer facing role where time is crucial.
I’m frustrated beyond all measure that I’m the one, again, who has to be more careful. Why is it not their turn to make changes for me?
