#21: Mr. Petty
Look, we’re not here to defend this person because he sounds like a pretty lame guy – but – sometimes, it’s best to give people the benefit of the doubt. We don’t know their story and the circumstances that lead them to behave the way they do. So, it’s better to just take the high road and don’t act petty.
Of course, it’s easier said than done. We would’ve probably had a petty smirk if we were in this guy’s shoes. When you hear that someone who treats you with disrespect and always goes on about how great he is gets fired, it feels like a small win- not just for you, but for mankind. It feels like the wheels of justice are at work.
