Okay, what I’m talking about is when, either in a business situation, or a personal one, someone is mad or cranky about something, and they behave huffily or crankily with everyone around them because of it. Even if what they’re mad about has nothing to do with the person with whom they are being cranky.
Maybe I’m extra sensitive to it, but I’m pretty sure this isn’t a “man/woman” thing. Only two of the guys in my office do this. The others behave as IMO, is the “proper” way to behave.
And that is, if you’re mad about something, you keep your frustration and anger confined to THAT specific person or problem. You don’t act all grumpy and snotty with everyone else in your vicinity.
Be CIVIL for crying out loud, is that too much to ask? Especially if your coworkers are also friends.
GEEESH, why are people so cranky???
