In this blog on music, I reference an ex-girlfriend through Kenny Rogers and the movie, Mars Attacks.
There was another significant dimension to her persona that proved to be major and a deal breaker. I tend to feel that it may be an element that is much more prevalent in guys. What happened to her on the job dominated her mood. If something went well at work, she was a delight (the Kenny Rogers evening is a case in point). But if work went poorly, the evening or even weekend was ruined. I could not handle it.
I need to know that to a large extent, what person I will see in the evening without worrying about it. Consistency is a good thing to me. One of my sayings is that when you get off from work and come in the front door, leave your job on the porch. Explain your day, and get on with the night or weekend. To me, one's job is but a part of their life, not their life. It can put one out of focus and out of balance, not to mention percolating through the lives of other people by creating a sour atmosphere and disrupting plans that pollutes life on a daily basis.
Fortunately, most of the women in my past were not this way and the ones that may have been more influenced by their job in their home life were not nearly this OC about it and it was manageable. We all have bad days at the office once in a while but balance and perspective are essential in one's life.
What do you think? Have you known people like this? Was it deal breaker? Are you somebody that can't get off from work and leave your job their emotionally.
