I had a meeting with a pretty cool company for Facebook today and afterwards realized how rude I was to their two representatives. So I am writing this post to bring me back down to reality.
I don’t think we will work with you.
After touching on last week’s writings about importance I guess I was the one who really needed advice. I think my ego started growing or toasting (bad joke related to ego waffles, anyways) after getting a dream job at Facebook, meeting new Amazing people all over Bay Area, helping coordinate a very successful conference and other random stuff. Does any of this give me the right to be rude to someone today or treat people differently? F, no!
Constructive criticism is much better when its constructive.
So what did I personally do? I called Marti who has known me forever and made him criticize me for about 5 minutes which he did quite easily. Then I realized how I want to be treated and how I SO detest rude or cocky people. Oh, and I called the two reps tonight to apologize for my behavior. So now I am deflated and back to normal, yay=)
