A tiger

Viewed 353 times 2017-3-6 18:51 |System category:Life

In a cage, at first, the tiger said to himself that one day I would break the cage and walked back to the real world. The other day, still living in the cage in a carriage of a train, the tiger was moved to another place where he had never ever put his footprints on. Yet, he was forced to be there.

Arriviing there, he came a performing tiger of a circus. He was fed with fabulous food. He came to be milder and milder. He was trained by a beast trainer who was skillful in training a wild tiger into a performable tiger.

He said to himself that I have to make changes; now that I was the captive and there was no way to run away so I had better adapt to my new life; why not?

So he became a kitty-like tiger, tandalizing people with extraodinary talents in playing with rings with fire and the other without fire. He was a adaptable tiger.

For half a year, for one year, for two years and for three years, he lived with the clowns, lived with the circus boss, lived with other workers and other performing animals.

He said to himself that it's enough. So he was trying to be as lazy as he could. In the trainings, he was reluctant to move, lying on the floor no matter he gots beatings or kickings from the trainers. Yet, in the meal time, he ate as much as he could to the point where his whole stomach was full and could not fill anying in at all. For around a week, he became an incompetent tiger, which could not help the circus earn even a penny. He was kicked out of thet circus at last.

While walking in the sideless grassland, he finally felt the excitement with freedom. He ran back to the forest in aim to look for his homogeneous species.

    I have never been in thought of interacton with people the way you think. It is quite new to me but I agree with you with 100 percent of support.

    I had a plumber come to replace a water heater recently and when he arrived I told him that if he needed help to let me know. The water heater was outside and I would be inside. So he replaced the water heater and he took the old one away, but as he was taking the old one away I could hear him and it sounded like he was struggling with it because it must have been heavy and awkward. Since he had not asked me for any help I did not help him but in hindsight I feel kind of bad about not going outside to help when it sounded like he was struggling to move it. The truth is that I really didn't want to help him move it, especially since I had offered help if needed and he did not ask. I preferred to avoid that interaction. It was the interaction that I did not want more than not wanting to help someone lift something. I can identity with your feeling of not wanting any more interaction with the repair guy than necessary and I do not think your actions were bad. The fact that you did not check with the guy that the job was fully done before he left indicates to me that you are a trusting person that did not question the repair guys ability to do his job. The problem in your scenario is not that you treated a stranger as a stranger - just that you may not have been clear enough in communicating the problem or that the repair guy had trouble comprehending. It was just a communication problem and you should not feel as though you failed to have upright interaction with the repair guy.
