I was on a 3-week trip recently and ended up having to interact with a lady who tended to drive me nuts.  She was loud, discourteous, self-centered, interrupted people, acted entitled, and half a dozen other irritating behaviors.  After a while, her mere presence, irritated me.  I have also been one to judge negatively and […]
