|Yeah, if only my eyes looked this good while crying...|
Here are two examples:
Several years ago, I had to deal with an IRS agent about an audit (not mine). Now, I have to tell you that most IRS agents I've met are not evil, but do NOT assume that they automatically know everything. Because believe me, they don't. This guy, however, was not very "user-friendly" and we went round and round over an issue and I got so upset that I had to excuse myself and go cry in the restroom. And by the way, I was right and he had to admit that to me later, but not before I felt like a total fool.
But perhaps the worst one was over 10 years ago, and this also involves work. It was time for my annual review and I was prepared to ask for a bigger raise than I was probably going to be offered. And sure enough, it came time for me to make my case and I freakin' cried. In front of my two bosses. Horrible, humiliating, you name it.
I did get a fat raise (and I deserved it) but I hated the way it happened.
