Tact is not high on the list for INTJs and ISTJs, last I checked. We are definitely the "what is wrong with YOU people" personality type. LOL!

I am totally lacking in tact.

I was home yesterday also waiting for my furnace inspection. No problem for me since I'm retired. Another reason that I really love retirement.

That is me exactly. Every time that I read a different one, I would think yeah, I would like to change that also. I guess I would learn to be more decisive.

I once took a personality test and failed. Apparently, I don't have one.

According the head honcho guy on 30 Rock, the entire population of the state of Florida is a criminal population, so I'm not surprised.

I have realized I am totally lacking in tact, but don't see that as something to be corrected.

I am at heart a self-centered a**hole.

I deal with it by pretending I am a pleasant, civilized person. It works pretty well, but I have to be on guard that the demon doesn't get loose. Change behavior and you change reality.

I have been waiting for that to happen again, but the guy has always shown up. The reason is that the next time, I'm going to sue the SOB in small claims court for the value of my time. I didn't know that was an option in years past but I'll do it in the future. That way THEY have to take a day off without pay!

There is more than enough precedent for one to win the case if you're ornery enough to take the time to do it.

Now that DH is retired he's realized he has enough time to get ornery and stay that way until he gets what he wants.

The other day he got aggravated, but the problem was solved rather quickly. He felt that was a good thing...because he was about to tell 'em, "Don't make me get all retired on your @ss!"
