Remember No One’s Trying To Irritate You
When people forget what you say, offer unsolicited advice or make comments in a stern or rude way, it’s very easy to feel like they’re trying to irritate you as if it’s their job to make your life a living hell. Now we’re not going to say this is an impossibility, but more often than not, that DMV clerk is not trying to irritate you. He or she may have other reasons and motivations for offering you that advice or speaking to you that way. It can help to remember that you may not be perceiving the situation correctly.
How do you stay calm and courteous at the DMV?
