Guys, Don’t Ask This Question on Valentine’s Day….
Dr. Dorsey here on this “love fest day.” The flowers have been purchased, the jewelry box has been opened and the candy has had a few pieces consumed. Now what’s next? The Valentine’s scoreboard!
Well, most working women will go back to work Monday morning and discuss with their co-workers what they got for Valentine’s Day from their sweetie. They will tell their story and then listen to all the other stories to see just who was the real “office winner” today.
Some got their gifts at the office and others had them waiting for them when they got home. In any case, all the stories will lead each of them to thinking just who was the ultimate Valentine’s Day recipient for this year.
Most will probably be very happy with what they got, but human nature can take over when it gets competitive. And with that competition comes resentment and frustration. With that in mind, Dr. Dorsey suggests to you men reading this that you refrain from asking a lot of questions about how your sweetie’s day went today. And especially, don’t ask, “What did the other girls in the office get for Valentine’s Day?”
You either are with the office winner for your efforts yesterday or you are in “The Dog House.” Let the sleeping dog lie. Don’t ask the question.
