One little word

Why does it feel like a personal affront when Outlook returns an invite with the word decline in the subject?


For me, I immediately feel like I should be on the defensive, and, screw them for not wanting to be with me at my meeting or outing or whatever! I mean, really, I only invited them to be polite, I didn’t really want them there anyway!

How weird is the psychie to have one small word in one email have such an effect!

And to top it all off, I have no quams simply hitting that decline button when there is an event that I am unable or unwilling to attend.

What a crazy thing the brain is!

    It really is too funny…how many times we are offended when people do to us what we do to them and no one gives it any thought until it happens to me :-)
    Love you,
