D’oh! I wish I hadn’t said that!

Whoa there!I really wish I hadn’t.

I saw something that irked me and dived for the phone to make my frustrations known.

Just as I was about to call someone walked into my office to speak with me.

I could have stopped and spoken with them. But instead I dialled on and got through to the person I wanted to speak to.

I vented.

They defended.

It wasn’t the finest hour for either of us.

I shouldn’t have made the call.

I should have taken a moment to stop and breathe.

I should have allowed the heat of the moment to pass so that I could then deal with it more appropriately with a level head.

I should have…

I should have…

I should have…

But I didn’t.


Please learn from my mistake :)
