Scritch, scritch, scritchI'm in my office yesterday evening when I hear what sounds like someone scratching hard into one of my glass window panes. The sound interrupts my concentration so I get up from my desk and head toward the front of the building. What I appear to see is someone scratching into the building with something sharp. The sound and the position of the fellow seem to go together. I was incensed and shouted with an aggressive tone to stop that. The trouble is the guy was only scratching at his game of chance card with a coin.
Perhaps my tone was a bit harsh and I apologized once I figured out what had happened. As I headed back down the hallway I could hear the guy calling me a term which wouldn't be polite repeating in mixed company.
I should know better but the youthful look of the fellow together with my imagination were too much for me to overcome and I now realize I overreacted.
Live and learn. Perhaps down the road this may cost me a potential client. I really must try to become more patient before I react.
