“Ugh yeah I worked for that guy before. He’s talented and all but he’s a real asshole.”
“Like, how was he an asshole?”
“We worked such long hours because he wanted to test things out.”
“Yeah, but like how was he being an asshole?”
“He just kept wanting to revise things up until he’s satisfied with the outcome and he was demanding… and I had to work such long hours. He was a total asshole.”
Personally I believe that as human beings we have an innate instinct to produce our own voice. It’s sad when you’re pegged as a bad person just because you’re just doing what it takes to get things done right…but then again, that’s a socio-economic epidemic.
There’s people who get angry when things aren’t done right and then there’s people who get angry at people out of fear of “losing face,” reputation, and things done/said but a part of themselves they don’t accept.
Know the difference between an asshole and a pansy (the real asshole).
Hint: “Assholes” work for their vision. Pansies work attached to “prestige”, “status”, and reputation at the helm of things instead of using these as commodities for a higher purpose.
