After reading the title of this essay, a name maybe even a few popped right into your head. Let’s be frank here, no matter how accepting and people loving you are there is at least that one person who drives you crazy. There is always that one person in our daily lives, who no matter what, just spews negativity around and can just be plain mean and nasty. No matter how straight laced a person you are, you’ve probably had some not so great thoughts cross through your mind. Thoughts may have included: you’ve watched all the CSI¸ Law and Order, and Criminal Minds that you know how to kill that person and make it look like an accident or you wished that something terrible would happen to them. Then after a minute of relishing in your mean thoughts, …show more content…
You know, the ones wishing harm or misfortune to the person who seems to refuse to treat you like a respectable human being. Then the guilt comes. Oh, that guilt it eats at you and taunts you till you think you are going insane. At the same time you think looking at your co-worker who makes it known she believes (hence believes) she is above you, and just wish could grab her and shake her till she changes. Well two things, minus the fact you are too kind and too moral, stop you.

The most important tip here is to try to disengage, especially when killing them with kindness appears to not help, and to not take immediate action in the heat of the moment. Think things through: see what you did, see what they did, get the full picture to report. Having another person, such as your boss, who supports you and being able to not seemed affected by that person in front of that person drives them crazy and it may get worse for a short period but they will soon give up, because, they cannot ‘win’ against a person who refuses to show defeat and does as they are suppose and told to do. So keep smiling; but, smile because you are relaxed and at peace not because you are having dark
