there is no place for hostile, condescending dress-down for non-compliance to your petty control-freak name tag rule.
If you think you might be the exact same flavor of crazy as me (or really, really close), please give a thumbs up for this post and maybe say a word of encouragement in this thread.

One, in life we're usually faced with a choice; be the person who everyone likes, or be the person who gets stuff done. Very rarely can we ever be both.
Two, in almost all situations, we are either the giver (host, etc.) or the receiver (student, guest, etc.). It's always seemed very clear to me that if I am the giver, be it a ride in my car, an experience I'm offering, or anything else, my needs are to be accommodated. If I'm the receiver, I need to pay close attention to what the giver needs.

I just wish those type of people came labeled with something obvious, so you can shut them down as soon as you see them.
