Immaturity shouldn’t be tolerated
Still fuming over an email sent and the hurt it caused.
People really need to think about their actions… there are lines that should not be crossed.
People need to be held accountable for their immaturity, not rewarded for it.
Too often, it gets brushed off. “Oh, that’s just the way they are. You can’t change them. They’re really not a bad person.”
Blah, blah, blah.
It doesn’t change the impact that it had, or the end result.
The sad thing is that when that email was sent, they KNEW beyond a shadow of a doubt what they were doing and what would happen after it was received. They did it to prove just what an ass they are. Although, of course, they don’t think they’re an ass, because again, they can do no wrong because they’ve never been called out on their shitty behavior before.
It sucks that that kind of behavior was, in the end, rewarded.
I know there are a lot of people who have/had my back in this, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it… but there are things you can’t unsee, can’t unfeel, can’t forgive or forget. The only thing that makes me feel better about any of it, it knowing WHO had my back and WHY they had it. Pefer et obdura; dolar hi tibi proderit olim at it’s finest.
—- Also, kind of sort of related, but not really: how are you a FORMER founder of an organization? You either founded it or you didn’t.
—- Also, also, kind of sort of related, but not really: It looks like a blended Masters in Accounting and Finance has moved from Someday/Maybe to a Project. It won’t be from BU, which totally breaks my heart, but BU doesn’t have a curriculum that ties to any of my horizons of focus. Neither does UConn, UNH, or Bentley.
