(Context: A law alum just came in looking for my boss and complaining about a fine. Something about her put me off immediately. It was probably the bitching about the fine, but I digress.)
Sometimes back when I was working at Crystal Blue I'd be waiting on someone and I'd just get really creeped out and uncomfortable. Of course, this being Crystal Blue, I could just mutter something about bad energy and one of my co-workers would rescue me.
But what is it that sometimes gives us an instant bad reaction to a person we know not at all? Is it just giving in to our base prejudices, like mine against whiny lawyers? Or are we maybe, just maybe, picking up on something? What's the saying? Ah, here it is:
"Trust your hunches. They're usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level." ~Joyce Brothers
Ah Google, how I heart thee.
