"We have to work to be good people… goodness always involves the choice to be good." ― Liv Ullman
I can be as bad as the person in front of me. I can say bad words back to you if I have to or when provoke. But then I chose to keep quiet because I don't want to regret things that I might say out of anger. I try my best to hold it in... as much as I could... but I do have my limits. And you wouldn't like it when I burst it out.
Somebody took something that belongs to me. And when I ask for it back, politely, she said "you can go to hell." What would you do in this situation? That's harassment already! I couldn't sleep that night thinking of the best way to approach this person. I kept thinking of different scenario to deal with her. In the end, I chose to have a 3rd party involve. It's not because I am scared of her, but simply because I know her to be a b*tch [sorry for the term] and I don't want to stress myself out because of her. I ask the management to meddle in. I think this was the best approach in this situation. We avoided confrontation that could lead to ugly things.
And I won!!! I got back what is rightfully mine.
I know she will not stop bad mouthing about me, or even say curse words behind my back... but people know her character/personality... and people know me... they just have to decide who to trust and believe.
