Incident at local museum



Since my friend moved to Oregon a few weeks ago, she asked me to help her pick up the unsold photographs she had on display at the local museum. I had been trying to get a hold of the museum's PR guy for the last 6 weeks to arrange a date and time to pick them up. He never returned any of my emails or voicemails. Luckily, when I dropped by this past Saturday the PR guy was present because the museum was holding a "Family Arts Day" to display artwork created by students at the local schools.

However, the PR guy had the nerves to blame me for NOT CONTACTING HIM FIRST BEFORE COMING OVER. I did tell him I tried to reach him unsuccessfully several times, but he still insisted that it was my fault. I was pissed, but there was no point in arguing with him any longer. I remained professional about it and just picked up my friend's stuff and left.

Thanks Dana for seeing the positive in this situation. I was still fuming mad when I got home that day.

I don't get why he was angry, but maybe it was easier than accepting he was wrong. Sheesh, you were doing someone else a favour and he lashes out at you.

Just smile and imagine that he will be getting his, because you put shit out in this universe, you get shit back.

Thanks for the comment... I wouldn't have been so calm with the guy, you did prove that you're the bigger person, but I would've made him feel quite small.
