Did I do that?
Sometimes things just get out of hand, despite my efforts. This morning is a perfect example. Marisa and Ariel got into a shouting match. I could see it coming and attempted to cool things down with each of them but they both seemed intent on blowing up and escalating things.
I have a tendency to want to slow things down and take time to think as the two of them are ramp-ping up. Of course that results in reactions by me that are too slow for the situation. So while I don’t start these things and can’t seem to stop them I end up the target in the end, probably because I look like an oaf bumbling through a crowded market.
