So, there's push back and then there's T'nC pushback - the old 'kill them with kindness' variety.
Here's a perfect example…
The officer in charge of the jury pool was harsh and rude! A typical bully, warning all perspective jurors of dire consequences if they so much as stepped into the bathroom at the wrong time!
Instead of finishing the day feeling abused by the constantly scolding voice, one of the 'poolies' walked up to that abusive official and thanked him profusely for his service, kindness and courtesy.
The officer's confusion, surprise and stuttered 'thank you' made all of us feel waaay better…
What do ya say?
Ever try this one?
