The Throwing Shoe Monday

Ephesians 4:26 Good News Translation (GNT)

26 If you become angry, do not let your anger lead you into sin, and do not stay angry all day.

Yes, I am human. I do get angry. I’m human enough to imagine myself throwing a shoe at someone who got me mad this morning. It’s frustrating when you try your best to be at peace with everyone but somehow, there’s that person that always gets in the way.

Here’s a word of advice: If you need something (at the workplace), don’t send out the email after 5pm on a Friday and say that you want to get the answers by Monday. Perhaps you find it a thrill to connect to the network and check your office emails on the weekends, not everyone does that,… so don’t expect everyone to spend their weekends working (when not required to do so)…just because it’s your hobby.

One more thing – if you need clarification on a report which you received, send your question immediately. The next day is ok, or even the following week. Don’t question the person two months later because not everyone has the time to extract all the old information again and re-analyse just to answer you. Plus, it’s not lean.

There…. I’ve done my shoe-throwing.
