One of my favorite TV shows is a British comedy called ‘The IT Crowd.” It’s about a couple of IT guys and their boss, Jen, who work at a large corporation. I’m not sure it’s actually still on the air, but it is on Netflix streaming so if you like things that are funny and awesome (I can’t imagine you wouldn’t since I know you’ve got such great taste, what with reading this blog and whatnot), then you should check it out.
I’ve been thinking about this scene in particular today:
I’m in the middle of something that I know I should just “walk away” from, but like Moss, despite trying to leave things be, I still manage to screw up and start fires.
I can’t be the only one, right? This happens to other people, too, doesn’t it?
I tell myself, “JUST WALK AWAY!” I even do the Moss hand gesture for walking away (really, I do), but it still doesn’t work. I still end up in the middle of things because I can’t help myself. I feel like sometimes I’m the only person who has trouble with this. Why can’t I just keep my mouth shut?
Am I alone? Has this happened to you? Or, if it doesn’t, how do you manage it? I’d love to know.
