Corporate Peon

Monday, August 08, 2005

I almost did something nice for someone this weekend. I was part-way there but then realized I really don't need to be nice to this person. I have no reason to, and it felt kind of like sucking up. And I definitely don't want or need to suck up to this person.

So rather than further invest myself in the nice offering, I cut my losses at $2.99 and bailed.

It wouldn't have killed me to be nice, but I just didn't feel it was worth it. Or earned. Now, sometimes - often, in fact - nice deeds aren't done because they've been earned. But in this case, I felt it had not only not been earned, but if anything, the only thing earned was a big pile of dog shit squirted under the person's front door.

So I opted for neither approach.
