Pass the Bottle … Captain Morgan Day 31 of 365
“Nobody can cause more needless grief than a power-driver who thinks he has got it straight from God.”
Service is a thankless job. And on any given day, the jobs need to be done, regardless of people. I have done the same thing week in and week out for as long as I can remember. I never know what God’s will is, but I try to do the next right things that presents itself to me, regardless of people.
And in the end the answer is very simple. Those damned slogans get you ever time. And tonight’s fare is: Live and Let Live …
And also that I am powerless over people, places and things.
It was a quiet end to the week, after my verbal diarrhea last night.
I was out and at the meeting in short order. It was a full house. Friday’s are good nights because we get to see each other, and put whatever’s on our minds on the table and you always get something back.
On the way home I came very close to the drink. A drink. As I got on the Laurier train there was a group of young people sitting together and one of them had a can of something, another had a fifth of Captain Morgan which they were passing amongst themselves.
That was about as close as I’ve come to the drink – an Open drink for that matter, in a long time.
People are seeing the same abuses I am seeing. It is not all in my head. Because you are doing it to others, and we see it. We’ve been seeing it for weeks. This does not bode well for the future, because you are turning people away and if they go, I go. plain and simple.
I am fed up.
I have been myself. I have been honest, and I have been kind. And I feel, and because of that I will NOT stay silent. And I am going to speak my mind accordingly. And you have been warned.
If you old men think you are going to intimidate us into silence, think again. A meeting is not about power, but the sharing of experience, strength and hope. Not passive aggressive behavior.
Just because you have MOMMY issues, does not mean that we are going to let you and your MOMMY walk all over us. Think again.
MOMMY MOMMY MOMMY MOMMY !!!!
You are only as sick as your secrets. And Actions speak louder than words. Once you speak the words you cannot take them back, and by acting you speak, even without words. We see You.
It was a good night.
More to come, stay tuned …
