Don't dare me

Recently, someone said to me that there was no point going over their head and talking to their boss or anyone else because the answer would still be the same. Well, something that is interesting to know is even if you don’t personally go over a person’s head, you can get things done. Also, when someone says to me don’t you dare, that is them trying to show me that they feel they are superior to me and that isn’t going to sit well with me. It is interesting how some people feel that they are the ones in control of a situation and don’t want to either provide you with the answers you need to resolve something or listen to your questions. This is what happened in this situation and after weeks of asking for some information which I never did receive, I talked to a friend about it. This friend is someone that I trust, and some simple words got things changed. I didn’t go over the person’s head, this friend used their influence to help me resolve the issue.

The simple thing of saying to someone, oh, you can’t make that turn because we should have turned there can result in some funny situations. In my case, we were out for a drive, and I said to the driver, oh, we should have turned left right there, but you can’t make the turn. Well, the driver made the turn and yes it was a sharp turn but my pop which was sitting in a cupholder didn’t make it and I ended up with a shoe full of pop. So yes, I dared someone and ended up wearing my drink. It was funny how it happened and to this day we laugh about this. I got out of the car to walk into a winery and all I felt was one very squishy foot in my shoe.

In some cases, a dare can be a lot of fun, but when it comes to someone trying to show they have overall power, that doesn’t work and should never be done. A dare for fun between friends is something, a dare in a form of a challenge isn’t something that should be done.

So next time someone dares you, remember that fun dares are ok, but when someone is trying to impose power over you, that isn’t something that should be done or accepted.
