Today's Irritant - Indecisiveness...

I’m a decisive person.

If you present a situation, I will present you with a solution. I won’t guarantee it will be the right solution, but it’s a solution just the same.

If you ask an opinion, I’ll give it to you. It might not be what you want to hear and if it’s not, oh well - you shouldn’t have asked me in the first place.

Ask me a question. I’ll give you an answer.

Why the hell can’t people give me the same courtesy? There are numerous individuals in my life that cannot come to a decision on their own and it’s pushing me to the brink.

I simply hate wishy-washy responses like… “I don’t care. What do you want to do?” or “It doesn’t matter. Whatever you want will be fine with me.”

I could make all the decisions and never give these individuals any opportunity to make a decision, but that would be rude and uncaring. Instead, I say “Grow a spine and decide already. The earth will not stop rotating if you make the wrong decision. Trust me….I’ve made a few wrong decisions in my time and will most likely make a few more.“

Decide and then move forward. Don’t look back – that will only lead to second guessing, which of course is another irritant on my list and the list keeps growing...

I would drive you out of your mind then.

I tend to go with the flow.
