Lets face it we all make mistakes some big and some small (at least in our eyes but that that is a whole other post.) So when our spouse or significant other comes to us for help or just to talk about it dont’ rub it in more. They have come to you and have admited what they did was wrong, or dumb or silly (depending on the circumstance) they don’t need you to rub it in more.
I have to be honest here, I’ve been having problems with my alarm clock for the last few months, until today it hasn’t caused me to be late just in and extream rush. But this morning I didn’t want to call MAC, I was embaressed this isn’t supposed to happen to 27 year olds who have been in the professional world for over 6 years…his reaction was a big deal to me he could either be annoyed and rub it in, or be supportive and help me figure out a system.
Show them support, help them out so that it dosen’t happen again, but please don’t rub it in.
PS I would like to say that MAC called me this morning to make sure I was awake and on my way to work, Thanks MAC!
