Today I am Thankful that I know how to KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT

Today I am thankful that I know how to keep my mouth shut!!!  Because otherwise I might have blown my top and been fired from my job here at the Lone Star Corral.

I would like to know what makes some people think they are so perfect that they cannot have the grace to allow others to make mistakes and then apologize for that mistake.  But no, they wine, mumble so people can't understand their mumbling and then make snide comments about people not doing their job right.

So I copied something upside down - dang, it didn't look upside down to me.  I apologized, offered to redo it, apologized two more times after some rude comments and then walked back to my desk.  And I am not apologizing again.  Three times is just plenty.

So yes, today I am thankful that I do know how to control my mouth even when my brain is running full steam ahead and would have liked to have said a huge mouthful. 

That's all for today!

Oh yes, I am also thankful for a loving hubby and good friend who said I handled the situation with grace and dignity.

Oh Ali - today's post made me giggle! Having 'been there, done that' I must say that my mouth usually just runs away with glad yours did not!

Here's another friend that agrees that you handled the situation well. None of us like to be accused and talked about. You are so right, we all make mistakes--all we can do is apologize and try to correct, which is what you did. It's good that you refrained from sinking to their low level!

Good for you - one of the hardest things to control is the tongue. Remember Prov. 15:1 ♥
