I always thought people would do unto me as I did unto them. If I was a generous friend, my friends would be generous back. If I was a hardworking boss, my employees would work hard, too. If I was an honest vendor, my clients would be honest.
I became horribly upset, even angry, when someone disappointed me, which invariably was the case. If an employee didn’t live up to my standards, my patience ran out. I fired far too many people back in the day. If I thought a friend was acting selfishly, I defriended her. If a client lied to me, I was beside myself.
