Looked up my job title today. Systems Support Tech. What does that even mean?!
When someone fails at something, but you note that they tried really hard, do you:
give them an "A" for effort; at least in the 'Effort' category they did really well.
give them an "E" for "Effort; they still failed, but was above an "F" due to their hard work (and, of course, that Effort starts with "E").
Why does hardly anyone look you in the eye as you pass by on the sidewalk? Is it just too much of a committment? Would that mean that they'd have to acknowledge that you exist? That they might even be inclined to smile or <gasp> say hello?!
...desire to do any actual work has completely slipped away... does it show??
