Sometimes the people with whom one must work in organizational capacities are not as thoughtful or kind as one might hope. One learns to be patient with these people, or one becomes, eventually, a bitter hermit or an Ayn Rand nut. Or both. I long ago decided in favor of being patient, but once in a while I need to remind myself of that decision.
Cue the chorus of angry libertarian commenters googling Ayn Rand.
