Today I am invited to write a letter to someone I feel wronged by. BUT I have also been learning about keeping it simple, and about living in the now. So if I write about something I feel wronged by that happened in the significant part of my past - I am not in the present. So I will write to the person who interrupted me when I was doing my journaling about dependency less than an hour ago. In full throttle with thoughts flying about people in my life who I may or may not be dependent on, the phone rings....and this is my letter about it. Dear Sue from UK Choice, I am writing to you to let you know that you interrupted me when I was doing important work, and I knew immediately you said "hello, can I speak to.......(full name with initials)" that I was going to be distracted and have to listen to what you had to say. I asked you who was calling, and you said Sue from UK Choice, and don't worry you were not about to sell me anything, you just wanted to find out my opinions about a number of UK companies. I want to let you know that even before you rang me I think you knew we are going to do this dance together. You are going to come over all innocent with your mildly probing questions, and I am going to be irritated or aggressive or somewhere in-between. I have nothing against you personally Sue, indeed you are the first mature Indian lady I have talked to who has that name so that makes you a little bit interesting. I let you talk. You were reading a script. I then told you that I was looking your company up on the web, and seeing if I could find out more about your organisation. When I told you I could not find anything about UKChoice you put the phone down on me. ON ME!!!!! I'm the one in this dance that's supposed to put the phone down. How dare you!? Didn't you want me to give you my time, my opinions, my less sensitive personal details? I am incensed that you did this to me, and I just want you to know that I won't be quite as nice the next time you ring. And by the way, I just know there'll be a next time. There are important things in life Sue, like doing a job you love, and being honest. May I suggest you go away and think about what you're doing, and what impact it has on each and every one of the strangers you phone every day. Best wishes.
