I wonder why we can’t seem to control our measurements. It would be horrible if we went to work every day and listened to others talk about the best worker, smartest computer programmer, or other items we might consider.

Just as easily as one can take a cookie from a child, an adult can snub another. I have heard some say that the other person was so irritating and so they deserved the slight. Others mentioned reasons such as the dreadful qualities of pride and control which were exhibited in the other person. Still others ascertain a troublemaker quality in the ostracized person.
