How many times have you had your head ripped off (metaphorically of course) for something you didn't do?

How many times has someone lit into you for something you had no control over?

How many times has someone exploded on you and they were not in possession of all the facts?

How many times has someone just gone off on you and you have no idea why?

How many times has someone presented a highly distorted and twisted version of events as the gospel truth?

When that happened, didn't you just about beg for the chance to explain?

Didn't you REALLY want the chance to present your side?
 
What would you have given if the other person had just closed their mouth and let you get a word in edgewise or simply explained?

Do you think the other person could have seen reason?

Would they have seen reason?

If you just had your chance to present your side of things and then let everyone else decide, that would be better. Just asking them to be fair. Am I right?

Been there? Done that? You are not alone. I'm right there with you.

In fact, I'm stating categorically, firmly and without question that you are one of those people who had ripped into someone else without justification.

You shredded someone for something they had no control over. You refused to admit to the existence of another side. You categorically denied they had facts to add. You insisted your position was right and not even divine intervention could make you wrong. You would not listen and blocked their attempts to explain.

Chances are pretty good that you even left out information which would have undermined your presented view.

Not gonna say you lied, but it would take an electron microscope to find the line between your story and a lie.

If the other person happened to be right or had facts you did not possess, it's still their fault and you made sure they knew it. I'm still right there with you.

Why do you get upset when someone treats you like an idiot when you've done it to so many others? Do you really want to be fair?
