Manic Monday #18

Question #1 - You have accomplished a difficult task and hear someone else taking the credit. How do you deal with the situation?
This has happened to me more than once, at different jobs. I don't work with the goal of having my own bronze statue in the cafeteria, but I don't like it when somebody tries to steal the credit for something they weren't even part of. Still, I have always reacted very calmly.
I just made sure that those who really needed to know, knew. The truth eventually blew up in the face of those lazy slobs. The sweet thing is that it happened every time.
Question #2 - If you had to marry someone that you presently know unromantically, and spend the rest of your life as their spouse, who would you choose?
Yeah, right. Like I'm gonna answer that! :-) Seriously speaking, I haven't even entertained a thought like that. Come to think of it, there are a few people I know that I feel must be excellent spouses, because they're nice, kind and understanding to their own better halves already. But I wouldn't even spend 5 minutes thinking of them as my future victim... I mean, wife. Gaby is everything I can hope for, and more.
Question #3 - If you knew than in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the way you are living now?
Going back to #2, I would probably spend more time with Gaby. I do spend a lot of time with the kids, in spite of my busy agenda. Another thing I would try to do is to control my temper. Sometimes I blew up for no apparent reason, and then I feel sorry (though I'm not aggressive or anything, just plain mad).
One thing I know for sure: I'm afraid -very- of dying, so I would not think of anything else during that whole year.


  1. Great answers - especially #2. This week was a toughie, wasn't it? Well done!

  2. I guess #2 is an easier question for those of us that are single :-) Except the person I would've singled out reads my blog LOL!

  3. Great answers! Happy Monday!

  4. 1. What goes around comes around.

    2. Hard question to answer but I would prefer to be alone :)

    3. I would also spend a lot more time with my kids.

  5. Great, well thought answers!

  6. We have similar answers ! The second question was difficult because it was something I never thought about :) And I could say the same about controlling my temper but I know it's a perfect waste of time : I need to let off some steam some time ! lol !

  7. When I was a supervisor; I always gave credit where do when something went right and when something went wrong, I took the blame.

  8. Honest answers - hope you get over that fear.

  9. Laane, I'm using the "Carnival of life" logo because I'm hosting the Carnival today. If you click on it, it takes you right to the website.

    I got the logo, along with the post with all the entries, from the website that organizes this carnival. If the image does not belong to them, then I think you should talk to them...
