Can someone please explain this to me because I'm at my wits end trying to 'get' some people.
Honestly, how can some people go through life being so incredibly vague, disorganised and forgetful? I know we all have our moments, but for these people, it's like a lifestyle choice. How on earth do they hold down jobs, maintain relationships or get anything done?
When I hear some women talk about how they have 'baby brain', I roll my eyes. I'm thinking, how can they blame their featherbrainedness on pregnancy when they've been like that their WHOLE LIVES? Show me a woman who normally is a fairly organised person, who suddenly loses her marbles during pregnancy, and THEN I will believe 'baby brain' exists.
At the moment, work is a nightmare trying to get organised for our next field day in less than two weeks. My workmates and I are trying to get everything done in a certain timeframe only to be let down by other people outside the workplace who are not meeting their deadlines. Their disorganisation makes us look unprofessional because we can't complete tasks until they do what they said they'd do. How do some people get and hold down important jobs when they decide to go AWOL and leave us hanging? It's rude!
I'm getting fed up with disorganised people - both at work and in my personal life. For goodness sake, buy a diary, get Google Calendar and USE THEM. It's not about being obsessed with people-pleasing; it's about honouring your promises and commitments. I hate it when people say to me, "Oh you're so organised," as if I got lucky with the 'organised gene' and they missed out. Take some responsibility! Organisation is a skill that everyone needs to keep practising their whole lives.
Are some people like this because they think there's always someone who will be stupid enough to pick up after them? As one of my former workmates at Curtin used to say, "A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part." I think this saying is true, but the worst thing is that other people's disorganisation ends up affecting those around them.
Are these sort of people gravitated to me or something? Does anyone else feel the same?
I don't get it. Please explain.
