He says I am COLD….

by Rod Smith

“I have been married for 25 years. When I met him he was drinking and I never thought much of it as we were socializing. On our wedding day he was drunk. When our first child was born he was in the car drinking whilst I was in labour and I needed him. It has not stopped there lately he does not stop drinking until he consumes almost a bottle of spirits. He admits he is an alcoholic but he is not interested in help or doing anything about it. He verbally abuses me when he is in this state, yet when he is sober at home, which is seldom, he tries to be so sweet. I find it difficult to submit sexually and show love to this man as he is destroying what is left of our relationship. He suffers from erectile dysfunction and blames me for his problems and accuses me of being cold and not interested in sex.”

Rod Replies: Look at your behavior! Get your focus off his actions and onto your own actions. Why would you put up with such nonsense for even a week, let alone 25 years? Ice cold is appropriate! Move on. You have but one life to live – why would you spend it engaging in such nonsense?

Ten office rules to help everyone be a little healthier…

by Rod Smith

  1. Mind your own business.

  2. Take care of every aspect of your own job before you give time to noticing what someone else is, or is not, doing.

  3. Never initiate or perpetuate gossip of any kind.

  4. Tell the truth.

  5. Apologize when necessary and try to learn from your mistakes.

  6. Get “you need” and “you must” and “you should” out of your vocabulary when you are talking to adults.

  7. Stand up to your boss if he or she is asking you to do something unethical or immoral.

  8. Thank and affirm people who are doing a good job in a manner that gets the person the greatest amount of positive exposure.

  9. Don’t use your work time, the phone, the copier, or the Internet for personal matters.

  10. Realize you are at work to work. You are not there to find a partner, to make friends, or to ease your loneliness. You are there to feed and support your family and to further the goals of the organization that employs you.
