When The Truth Didn't Matter
Deep regret and guilt.
That was how I felt after seeing Emil and the other teams at the door. I just finished talking to management about the problems with Emil's team. The things I said were true, but I spoke bluntly and heartlessly- thinking that we were alone, only to find Emil and the others within hearing distance outside.
"Tell the truth, but be kind about it - especially when it's hard to hear."
I've humiliated Emil by speaking ill of him "in front of" the other teams, and without giving him a chance to explain himself. I was such an asshole that night. And to be honest, I really don't know what to do about it...
Remember this, Arlet. And don't be such a jerk next time. Always speak as if the world is listening.
