I try to keep it under control but sometimes against my better judgement, I can get a bit snarky, even with people I love. I hate being kept waiting and incompetence is my kryptonite. All of us.
Even the most saintly among us. My dick-ness comes out in snarky comments. For you, it might be passive aggressiveness, actual aggressiveness or simply being inconsiderate.
Spend a full day concentrating on being considerate in everything you do. Just do it for one day and it will be eye opening how easy it is to be considerate of other people. You would never have yelled at your partner if they just put their damn washing in the basket. You would never have beeped your horn and yelled at that guy on the road if he just drove more responsibly. You would never have written that awful email about your colleague if he just showed up to work and actually DID his work.
Unfortunately, you have no control over the way other people behave. The only thing you have control over is your reaction to the way other people behave and if you constantly find yourself blaming other people for your own behaviour, the first thing to do is monitor your own reactions. I already have a strong snarky streak in me and if that pops out at the same time as my Resting Bitch Face, it can get ugly very quickly. Dick and Rick are both white men and the illustrations bring up pointed issues regarding diversity in the field; in , African-Americans made up just 2 percent of the number of licensed architects in the US and in , 81 percent of urban planners were white in the US.
Gender and class disparity continue to plague the design professions.
