Resolute


I have an interview tomorrow morning for a customer service type job to help pay the bills and maybe get school stuff paid off. I don't care too much for customer service but if I get the job, it does pay well. The drive will be a bit of a pain, but the extra money will offset the tolls and gas.

Anyway, some other random thoughts:

What is the difference between being resolute and too darn stubborn? I wonder about the 'resolve' of nations, fanatics, and recalcitrant gamers, lol, and think if they are simply unreasonably stubborn. Or am I just being cynical? I also wonder if cynicism and pragmatism are reactions to maturity and age, and if having a 'resolve' is a side effect of idealism. Hmmm... just wondering, that's all. More a need to type stuff out, than being interesting, lol.

So, need to get some sleep. I'll let everyone know how things go tomorrow.

What was that quote...something like, 'Show me someone who has a deep, abiding loathing of the whole, entire human race...and I will show you someone who worked/works in customer service!" {Ex computer tech, cashier, etcetera...can ya feeeel me, baby? }

Hope you are resting and sleeping well. Later....

Hey C,
I always think of "resolve" as being passive about something, but being stubborn is an active stance. But that's me! Glad the interview went well, I work in customer service in a call center and love it. But I'm a problem solver, so when they bitch, I like to get it handled and make them happy. It's not for everyone, but it works for me. Sleep well!

Oh, I was that way when in call centers... usually went out of my way to make people happy. In the end, people should be happy
