Reminiscent thoughts on a Thursday.....aka 'Lies “They” Told Me Growing Up'.......
Permanent Record: They used this one on me all through high school. “This will go on your permanent record!” Until I wised up and realized, who the hell cares and who is going to see it once I’m out of this education prison?
It was used again when I was in the workplace. My reply was always, “Go ahead! Put it on my ‘permanent record”! (adding air quotes) I would say.
Which would ultimately lead to:
You HAVE to sign this.
I don’t HAVE to sign anything.
I actually had one supervisor who locked me in a conference room saying I couldn’t get out until I signed the ‘final warning’ she had written up on me. Great! I’ll stay here all day (I hated that job anyway, so keeping me away from it was a win for me!) Kinda backfired on her, huh? Lol
