Emotions bypass Reasoning

Rick is surprised that his employee quit.  “But I did so much for that guy,” he says, “I was counting on him.” 


Danielle is surprised that her tenant moved.  “She wasn’t just my tenant,” she says, “I thought we were friends.”


What Rick and Danielle don’t realize is that being a good boss or a good landlord, isn’t enough.  You have to be a good person. 


For years the boss told political jokes that offended the employee and the landlord made racist comments that hurt the tenant.  Neither objected aloud.  People don’t always speak up.  But they do vote with their actions. – Shar McBee
