My Theory #1

My Theory

I recently found myself in the awkward situation in which you have to make a decision with a group of people, without sounding bossy (a skill I’m still working on). For example when you’re with a group of friends and someone asks “What should we do?”. Personally that feels like that The gauntlet has been laid down, I already know what I want to do. Now my plan begins to make things go my way.  This leads to a whole theatrical process in which everyone takes on a character.

1- The Shruggers “I don’t Mind. I’ll do what everyone else wants to do” Thanks.. That’s really helpful..

2- The Procrastinators “I’ll have a look in a second. I’m just watching a goat do a handstand..” These people have no intention of doing anything..

3- The Lame Idea Guy “I have an idea! Lets stay in and play Monopoly!” Yeah we could… Or…..

4- The Bossy Kid “I think we should go to the (Insert anything that ‘the boss’ wants to do).” I guess we are doing whatever they want then…

Decisions

After many, many minutes of what can only be described as amateur dramatics we finally decide that my idea is the best/the only one that wasn’t monopoly…

This is going somewhere I promise, I’m not just waffling on…
