What I Really Want For Christmas
What I want won't cost anyone anything, it will just take a little extra thought, maybe, a little extra concern, a little - dare I say it? - love. I don't need fancy store-bought presents, or lots of tinsel and glitter.
What I want is for when my desk is a mess, I just want a co-worker to come in and say, "My bad. Sorry I messed up your desk." Or when I'm selfish or thoughtless, which is most of the time, I want the other person to say, "Please forgive me, I should be more appreciative of you just the way you are." If I rear-end someone in traffic, I want him to leap out of his car and say, "This is entirely my fault! I backed right into you!"
That's all I want. Nothing expensive, nothing you can buy in a store, just for everyone else to take the blame for everything wrong with me.
Anyway, Merry Christmas, everyone.
