Sneer and Spell


Ever since being called pretty competent by my boss, I've strived to be as much as I can be without straining anything.

Today while participating in some work sponsored reprogramming training, we were herded into groups of three to play reindeer games and asked to flip chart our responses.
Our first task was to each write a word on the chart expressing how we felt about some looming changes to our work methods.

I wrote the word anxious and handed the marker to one of my compatriots. He started to write something and stopped. I want to write apprehensive but I don't know how to spell it he said. It's with two pees I told him. He stammered, but I don't know what comes after that and so I spelled the rest of it for him.

I was sure this would be the saddest thing that happened to me all day until the other gentle mental giant took marker in hand and meekly asked Do you know how to spell cautious?

I still would like a job there and am available for interviews anytime. I can spell.

Also? FIRST!

Dale said...

You may be the first and last! I write here only when I think nobody's looking!

BeckEye said...

I-R-O-N-Y.

SkylersDad said...

I hate these work related feel-good sessions with the passion of a thousand suns!

Beth said...

Ugh. I have one with a 360 assessment coming up this summer. Why must I do 360 assessments every two years? I wish we'd do a 180 on those damn things.

(Hi, Dale. Miss you.)

Some Guy said...

I always thought cautious had a silent m in it somewhere.

Flannery Alden said...

Sounds like they are preparing to move your cheese.

And, speaking as a trainer: first rule of flip-charting: "Spelling doesn't count." Or is it "there is no fight club"? I can never keep those rule sets straight.

jin said...

Haha!

Distributorcap said...

is this the spelling bee site?

Dale said...

B-E-C-K-E-Y-E! I know!

You need to sit beside me at the next one Skyler's Dad so we can plot.

Because they need to study your kind of brilliance Beth. Sadly, they will never be able to mimic it. I miss you too!

Silent and invisible Some Guy, very stealth like that m.

Rules are fine by me Flannery and I'd never call anyone out on their poor spelling, except maybe here. I didn't mention one of the other groups during another exercise spelling 'rapport' as 'rapour' did I?

You said it Jin!

It could bee Distributorcap.

Dale said...

You're already legendary here Gennifer6.

Even I can't fathom my brilliance Sans!

茜茜知道他有了外遇
他變得春風滿面,嘴裡總是哼著歌曲
他開始變得有耐心聽她說話、會買禮物給她、甚至帶她出遊
茜茜知道這是因為他對外遇有愧疚
她沒有揭穿丈夫的外遇,甚至享受這樣的生活
茜茜偷偷的跟姐妹滔說:感謝老公的外遇帶來更美好的夫妻生活!

知道他有了外遇
面對他的低聲下氣妳冷嘲熱諷、無理取鬧
妳瘋狂似的大吵大鬧
甚至到他的公司去亂、向他的親友抱怨、向鄰居們哭訴…
妳把他的外遇鬧的人盡皆知
最後,妳把他的愧疚消耗殆盡…
最後,妳把他想要回頭的念頭打消…
最後,妳自己把他推向外遇的第三者身邊…

外遇---偷來的時間、偷來的伴侶、偷來的愛情
或許新鮮刺激,或許瘋狂美好,但這一切,終究是偷來的…
外遇傷害了一個幸福的家庭
或許你會說:問題其實早已存在,外遇並不是傷害的唯一因素
但是內心深處其實你知道,這只是外遇的藉口!
建築在傷害別人之下所得到的愛情,終究難以幸福…

就像許多外遇故事一樣
男人有了外遇想要離婚,但是女人死不放手
所以他藉故發揮、所以她不甘示弱
他總是說這樣不可理喻的女人俗不可耐才讓他想要離婚
她總是說這樣背棄婚姻的男人她絕對不會離婚讓他們好過

記憶中我從沒有過快樂的童年、幸福的家庭
父親在家的時候總是爭執不斷
父親離家的時候母親總是數落不斷

我總是想,為什麼不離婚
這樣的婚姻意義何在?

母親認為離婚就是輸了
但是她不知道,自己身陷在漩渦中無法掙脫...

顫抖著手,我拿不穩那份薄薄的離婚協議書
早知道他的出軌,癡心的守候最後他終究還是想要離婚
朋友勸我抓姦,但是我擔心他一氣之下會決裂的提出離婚要求
我愛他,願意作出一切只為挽回
所以我等、我默不吭聲、我在他面前強顏歡笑
多少夜裡,他用敷衍的藉口不歸
而我假裝相信,卻淚濕了枕頭...
顫抖著手,我拿不穩那份薄薄的離婚協議書
啞著聲音,我告訴他我絕對不會離婚去成全他們
只是,我不知道不離婚,懲罰的是他們,還是我自己...

就像一般抓姦的戲碼一樣,她衝進去看見難堪的場面,
男人因為被抓姦而惱羞成怒的想要動手打人,
第三者沒料想到會被抓姦而驚慌失措,而女主角,
冷漠的看著這現實的一幕...抓姦,讓她更看清楚事實!
抓姦,也讓她更知道是離開的時候了!

表姐交了一個人人欣羨的男友,
聽說家裡面很有錢,每個人都很為她祝福。
沒想到結婚之後才發現一切都是男方的謊言,
表姐想要離婚,對方卻死不放手!
看到了這情形,讓我想到了婚前徵信的重要性;
雖然很多人認為婚前徵信是一種懷疑的表現,
但是如果不做婚前徵信,又怎能知道對方刻意隱瞞的事實?
現在我有了論及婚嫁的對象,爸媽也很贊成婚前徵信
婚前徵信的結果對方果真的家世清白孝順的新好男人;
帶著滿滿著祝福與喜悅,我總算能安心的當準新娘!

心存懷疑就要去查證!很多人懷疑伴侶通姦
卻寧願選擇相信對方欺瞞的藉口,
最後導致通姦問題變得難以解決!
通姦的人不會自己承認,當您懷疑伴侶通姦時,
不要相信對方的藉口,應該要積極去查證,
讓實際證據告訴您伴侶是否通姦

許多人以為外遇發生就很難感情挽回
其實只要在外遇初期,感情挽回幾乎都是可以成功的!
夫妻多年的感情不是短時間就可以磨滅,
加上孩子親情的呼喚、自身的努力,感情挽回其實不如想像中困難!
然而許多人卻不知道對方早已外遇多年,
伴侶與第三者建立出難分難捨的情誼,
感情挽回自然困難度就提高許多,
想要感情挽回就需要更多技巧與付出更多努力!

新婚一年,我們竟然就相敬如冰!
當初被沖昏頭,沒發現她如局外人的冷淡,於是我合理的懷疑,她有外遇!
於是我找上徵信社為我調查,
徵信社的回報資料攤在我眼前,我真的難以接受,
我一直為了要給她過好日子每天努力工作,
然而她卻在同個時刻帶男人回家溫存!
徵信社進一步的調查之後,甚至發現他們早就在一起很多年,
根據徵信社給的資料,我才發現,原來她只是因為我的錢才嫁給我!
那麼我們剛出生的孩子,極可能也不是我的孩子嗎?
如果沒有請徵信社幫我調查,到底我還要被利用多久!!

明知道他有婚姻,筱蝶還是陷進去了
他告訴筱蝶,不是不願意離婚
只是孩子還小,他不忍心孩子這麼小就面臨父母離婚的難題
他告訴筱蝶,他有多麼愛她
他多想馬上離婚光明正大和她在一起
他告訴筱蝶,她值得更好的人,但是他捨不得放手
只要給他兩年時間,他就會馬上離婚
多麼動聽的話,為了他的承諾,筱蝶甘心傻等
一心等對方離婚、一心想要成為他的太太
然而當兩年的時間過去了
男人還是沒有離婚
他淡淡的對筱蝶說:我配不上妳,所以我要放妳自由!
