Everyone has one. Some can last longer than others, some blow up quickly. Many let it simmer for a long long time. After weeks of dealing with an issue at my apartment complex, I am reaching the breaking point. Yesterday a good friend summed up how I reach the breaking point.
First, I am mad. Not too mad, but people can see I am not satisfied. Then it builds, and builds, and builds. Then… I get calm and quiet. Following this there is the ‘bing’ moment. You know the sound when someone smiles big and white? The little ‘bing’? Well that is what happens next, I smile, real big and sweet. It’s my ‘bing’ moment. Following this is the snap.
It is that unassuming calm and quiet that fools people. They think I have conceded… But I haven’t. In truth, I have simply come up with the solution, and it usually involves me taking care of things myself.
Anyways, with this situation, I am quickly approaching the ‘bing’ moment. Obviously not a good thing.
As of today, it appears to be working itself out. That was not the case for the past two days.
We shall see.
Watching and Waiting,
