Misapprehension

I was so furious, I was ready to quit. I even typed out a letter of resignation--brimming with anger, with harsh criticism of the people at my newspaper.

Reason: I suspected that my Friday column had been killed.

Perhaps because there was too much "hard" news. (The same editor had once told me that there wasn't enough room for my column.)

Perhaps because the editor didn't approve of that particular column--about ageism.

I sent that editor an insulting note.

He explained that he had simply forgot about my column -- and apologized!

Lesson: Look before you leap. Even you have a history of jumping to the right conclusions
