So, ya know, when I finished High School and went on to college, I thought that I was finished with that whole "High School group mentality". You know the one I mean. It's that one where everyone in the class is trying to argue the teacher out of putting a test or a due date on a certain day or trying to convince said teacher that a test question was hard or misleading and should thus not have been included. Or coming up with excuses as to why something is not turned in on time. . . anything like that. But the exact same thing happened in college. It frustrated me in high school, it frustrated me even more in college, and now . . . it frustrates me in the working world. We had a meeting at the airport today for all of our Baltimore-based flight attendants. Any guesses as to how it went?

People are frustrating.

OK, sorry to complain and not include anything positive, but I've got to go check on the chicken enchiladas I've got in the oven. Oh, wait! That's positive! I'm making chicken enchiladas for dinner! Woo!

So I was thinking about the whole high school mentality that I wrote about in my last entry, and came to the conclusion that that sort of thing was bound to happen in any group in which one member has authority over the rest. And that conjured the image in my mind of a group of college history professors sitting in a board meeting and complaining to the head of the department that such-and-such "just isn't fair" and beginning every sentence with "but, you know . . . " or "what I'm trying to say is . . . ". And it struck me as funny. But maybe that's just me.
