Re: Job Stress

I've always been one who says offensively true things and get away with it.
I think it's actually helped my career.

Are you sure? maybe they were offended but just didn't say anything...

I offend people daily I think. Most of them need it; they need some
hide-thickening. I usually pick out the squishiest people too...

I've said things that even offended ME. After they came out I stop and think 'I
can't believe I just said that, that was mean'.

I learned early on that I am better off to keep my mouth shut except
when somebody is going overboard on the other end. I made the mistake
once of getting involved in a conversation about carnal knowledge. I
mention the word prophylactic and got turned in for sexual harassment.
Since then I watch everything I say and to whom I say it. Some of my
coworkers think I'm a jerk, but I'll not let that happen again.
