Number 11: I fear authority figures

Welcome back to getting to know Mrs. Hall. Numbers 1-10 are here.

Number 11: I fear authority figures

Maybe it's because I've been pulled over 4 times. Each time for speeding, each time deserved. Each time a 100 dollar fine out of my poor student pocket. Each time I cried because it sucked.

Maybe it's because the fear of being fired has been drilled into me by my parents. Drilled into my brain because they always had jobs where they could be fired at a drop of a hat. To this day whenever I complain about work they say, "But, it's ok right, you're not going to be FIRED are you?"

But, I fear authority.

I try to stay anonymous and work hard. And when the clinic manager makes a visit I try to hide. But, she found me anyway. Finally gave me keys to my office-I've been here two years. This oversight of me not getting keys indicates how much I am not on their radar.

BE the authority and question the authority don't run from it.

I don't fear em, but I don't like em either. If someone orders me to do something, my first reaction is to see if I can get away with not doing it or doing the opposite. No wonder I had such an interesting school career! At work, I'm one below the boss, and I'm more in control so she's scared of ME!

Authority is more often abused than exercised properly. Don't fear it. Question it...

Jus sayin.

I used to be like you, and I feared authority. Then I underwent a strange revelation around the end of my 30s, and now my soul purpose in life is to kick authorities ass.
