We live in a system of rules. They’re everywhere. Some people think they’re for our own safety, and some think they’re put in place to limit us. Either way, if you and I are in a position, and following rules are required, then we both shall follow them.
If I follow them, and you don’t, then that’s not fair to me. This is kindergarten, but obviously some of us weren’t paying attention, or our teachers dropped the ball. Perhaps some of us just lack consideration.
Is it fair that I arrive on time every day and you don’t, but we’re both required to arrive at the same time? How long do you think a person can deal with the short end of the stick? How long do you think it’s going to take for a problem to start?
There’s an old saying, “Without rules there’s chaos.” When rules are put into place that’s the truth. That saying means that we all follow the rules or none of us follow them because the genius who coined it foresaw the problems that will eventually occur.
What ends up happening in a situation such as this is eventually the person who follows the rules and does everything they’re required within the framework of the establishment, is seen as a problem. This happens because eventually they start to talk about the way they’re feeling. They’re feeling upset because no one is correcting or saying anything to the people who aren’t following the rules.
They’re upset. Are they wrong for complaining or venting? What do you think? Has this happened to you?
Are you a problem? Comment.
