One of my first jobs in St. Louis was as a receptionist for a shady insurance company. There was a manager there who was an absolute jerk to everyone there. Rude, snarky, demeaning. I tried my best to avoid him. Then the office manager said she and her husband socialized with this man and his wife. She revealed that he was sweet and gentle when he was with his wife. I couldn’t believe it.
Over the years I’ve adopted his motto. If you’re going to be sweet and kind to anyone, it should be the ones that you live with.
After all, you live with them.
It only makes sense that you want everyone under the same roof to be happy together.
Namaste, my friends.
