You can't make the poor buggers happy.

I have found that regardless of what you do, there are going to be people who whine about it. I've spent several weeks working on a project that I presented today to about 30 people. I had worked very hard, which for a perpetual slacker like me is saying a lot. I had consulted several people experts on the subject , and had all in all put much thought into it. Up until today, everyone I had talked to about the project thought that it was really very interesting. Not to pat myself too hard on my back, but I was pretty proud of myself.

Enter the audience. I shouldn't get too down on myself. Most of the participants were excited about the project, and their role in it. But there were those 2 or 3 who made me want to pull out their hair. (Yes, I said their hair, why ever would I pull out my own. Ouch!) I resolve not to let the 2 or 3 negative people over shadow the positive people. I am presenting again tomorrow to a smaller group. Let's hope that the negative people will keep their little mouths shut!

Well, don't you see what the problem is? THEY are in fact the ones you are holding trial against. THEY are Cruella De Vil's grandchildren. Don't be scared. Just make sure Brodie knows to attack at once.

Pull their hair.
