Telling someone off…

I finally told someone off today that I’ve been wanting to tell off for over twenty years. I told him he was a rude and insulting prick, and it felt really good. I mean, you’d think it wouldn’t actually feel so good but, sure enough, it felt really good. This is coming from a guy who hates conflict and does everything he can to avoid it. I mean, I’m normally a very level-headed, even-tempered guy who treats everyone with kindness and care – but some people are just rude, insulting pricks, you know? So, after more than twenty years, I finally told him. That’s right.

It still counts if I did it over the phone, right?

Well done...and it totaly counts if its over the phone. The biggest question is, did guilt follow? cuz sometimes there's a guilt associated to it...unless you don't care if you two remain friends then there should be no guilt. = )
