I am the most important person in the world!

Ever run into anyone with that attitude? Of course we all have. This week gave two great examples of that.

We had made arrangements with a person that was supposed to come get some stuff out of the house we are renting. He has been saying he would come for 4 months. I called him Saturday and we arranged a Tuesday, 10:00 am time. We don’t currently live in the house but are starting to move stuff over there. So, we made a special trip to be there at 10:00. At 11:00 that morning, I got a text message from him saying that the truck they had borrowed would not be available until 2:30 in the afternoon, so he would be there then.

Whatever happened to calling before the appointment to cancel? I messaged him back and said that 2:30 would not work as all of our afternoons were filled except Friday. I heard nothing back from him. So here I sit on Thursday night (after messaging him to check to see if he is showing up on Friday) expecting to get a phone call from him Friday afternoon, probably around 5:00, asking me why I am not at the house to let him in.

The second incident happened today when a taxi pulled into the lane of oncoming traffic because he felt like he needed to be ahead of the 7 cars in front of him. By doing so he blocked people from being able to pull into that street, which then blocked the people that he would have been behind from being able to pull out. So because one man felt like he was more important than everyone else, he made the situation worse and probably delayed his ability to reach his destination much longer than if he would have just waited.

As I was writing this, I thought of several more examples from this week, but I will stop at these two.

  1. I AM the most important person in the world.

    And every single person in the world should think the same way. Because if you don’t prize yourself highest and take care of yourself, nourish yourself and love yourself, you are no good to anyone else.

    I think you confused the individual in your story with not someone who thinks they are the most important person in the world, but someone who is an irresponsible, inconsiderate idiot.

    You can make yourself the centre of your universe and still be an amazingly considerate person.

    It’s all about balance and perspective.
