I had this recent experience where a person I knew exploded in a meeting and accused me of all sorts of things. Fortunately, I not only hadn’t done what he accused me of, I had good documentation, witnesses, and backing from my employer. That doesn’t mean I wasn’t stunned, wounded actually; truthfully it really affected me for several weeks.
I couldn’t wrap my brain around why a person would do what he did. I mean, I know he was stressed out but make stuff up, make wild claims, seriously he was off the chain. Then I read this from Shannon Thomas.
