Playing nice

Today I was chatting with my co-worker S. about holding grudges. I am one such holder. I think everyone is to a degree — except maybe those who meditate.

If you cross me — or really just disrespect me — I won’t forget it.

I won’t do anything untoward, of course. I am always polite and I will remain civil and professional.

But we won’t be chatting it up. We won’t be having lunch. I won’t ask about your pets or about your recent vacation.

I won’t go out of my way to make anything you need to do easier, either — unless it is to my advantage.

Really, I am just like everyone else in your office. But I’m probably nicer.
