Nice Guys Finish Last ...

I was told in a meeting this week at work that I was too accomodating. I find this amusing. I didn't realize there was such a thing. I always thought that being nice and being helpful were good things. I like to help people and do whatever I can to help.

I find it even funnier because I have been told this in the past. A few years ago at a Christmas party for my old company, one of the women who worked in the parent's company (after a couple of cocktails) yelled at me for being too nice and told me that's why I had such trouble getting women.

All in all, rather amusing. I wish I could be less nice, but I guess I just enjoy being nice and helping out. Was just the way I was raised. Ya know, if people don't like it, they can just deal. Ohh, was that me almost being mean? Maybe I could get good at this :)
