I was at the Canada Post Office the other day. Two clerks were at the front desk. It was my turn to be served, but they were busy. The one on the left was complaining bitterly about how she hated this job, how she was totally fed up apologizing for Canada Post. “I’m mad as hell and I don’t want to take it anymore” was her message.
Meanwhile, the other clerk, stood there and listened and sympathized with the upset clerk. And as I waited for this rant to end, I heard over and over again, “I’m fed up with this job.”
I was tempted to say, “Then why don’t you quit?” but better judgement ruled and I just bit my tongue.
And after a couple of minutes of venting, the clerks got back to their job.
It is so much easier to complain about something that do something. And that is what most people seem to do with their lives. Don’t like your job? Start looking for alternatives. Unhappy with your lot in life? Start working on changing it.
Bottom Line: If you are tired of eating peanut butter sandwiches for lunch every day, stop making peanut butter sandwiches.
For a lucky few, putting their desires into action result in having the life they want. I don’t think this postal worker will be one of them.
