A Lesson In Tolerance
Is there that one person in your life who just rubs you the wrong way? The one that brings a grimace to your face when they walk in the room. There's just something about this person that you can hardly tolerate, but they are so unaware of your feelings. This person is always so happy to see you that they immediately approach you the moment that they see you.
While your nemesis is looking at you with total adoration you are trying to make eye contact with anyone else in the room, imploring them to help you stop this obtrusive behavior.
You search the exits of the room, trying to find a way out while your irritant seems to be all around you at once, filling the room with his presence.
You finally realize theirs nothing you can do, you are family after all and are thrown together constantly. He's not a BAD person, just irritating to you for God-only-knows what reasons. You vow to try to be more tolerant of his over zealous behavior.
(We get such a kick out of watching poor Blackie "tolerate" Mr. Thomas O'Malley. He looks at us as if to ask, "Do you see what is going on here? Are you going to do something about it?". No, only take pictures of your discomfort dear doggie.)
