Today’s question is: Why do some people feel the need to control everything?
Background: My man and I are headed out onto a yacht on lake michigan tonight for a few drinks with some of his clients. One of his co-workers will be with us as well. This co-worker planned the whole event, every detail, even down to what my man and I should wear.
Yep, that’s right she told us what to wear. Now, I am a grown woman, one that has never had a hard time picking out an outfit for a client engagement. I have good taste and have some very lovely outfits. I hardly need some woman at my husband’s work dictating what I should wear to any engagement. Nor do I welcome such advice.
As a result, Paul will not be wearing the linen shorts she suggested, because 1. he doesn’t have any and 2. I wouldn’t let him wear them if he did, too wrinkly. I will be wearing a dress, which is what I was instructed to wear, but for goodness sakes, it’s what I would have worn without direction.
So the question remains, why do some people feel the need to control everything? Even to the extent of dictating the clothing choices of his/her colleagues?
