A day that dawned with many promises ended with a list of letdowns. I wasn’t allowed to work on the tasks that I wanted to work on. Other’s priorities polluting my calendar - the usual stuff.

To make matters worse, a few people carry an attitude which only mars the team’s morale and, eventually, their productivity.

It is one thing to believe you are smart. It is another to assume the others are dumb. The former shows confidence, later callousness.

The only saving grace is that it’s the start of the weekend.
