…isn’t just something I say at the Waffle House when I pay my bill.
I am a creature of habit.
I don’t like change.
I don’t like people who have to change everything all the time, just for the sake of change.
They annoy me.
Some change I’ll admit is good. You know, like de-segregation, safety features on cars, Larry King retiring…stuff like that.
But some people have jobs that center around change, and they annoy me – tremendously. As a matter of fact, it they weren’t changing things, they would have no job at all.
I’m a guy who’s furniture is sitting in the same place the movers put it 12 years ago. With the small exception of the family room, and that was a “surprise”. Imagine my confusion UPon coming home from a trip to find my chair moved, the TV on the other side of the room, and the pictures completely rearranged. Oh, yes, the walls were a different color as well.
I like the Mona Lisa just as it is, the Golden Gate Bridge cannot be improved, and a Statue of Liberty make-over is out of the question.
I like my routines, my schedules, knowing what comes next.
So, keep the change.
