I shouldn’t take it personally, and on most levels I don’t. It’s just the way they are. More than that, they do it in part because they can; because I’m a safe bet and nothing is ultimately threatened. In some respects it’s a back-handed compliment, but sometimes it pisses me off even so. I make it personal. I’m only human and it doesn’t do them any harm to wear that for a while. After all, the very fact that they respond at all is a measure of what’s been achieved; of how far they’ve come in such a short time.
