Have you ever met or saw someone doing a job and wonder…“ how the hell did they ever get in that position?”
I once was told by someone that they referred to those people as “post turtles”. When people say phrases like these, my curiosity is peaked.
“Ok, you got me! What is a post turtle?”
He said, “Every once in a while you see a turtle on a fence post. He can’t go anywhere, he’s kind of stuck and he doesn’t know how he got there or what the hell he’s doing in that position.”
“But, I don’t blame the turtle for his lack post sitting abilities, I blame the dumb ass that put him there in the first place.”
Moral of the story…Be patient with the post turtles in your life. They have a hard enough time the way it is. Help them with their situation, because you may have been someone else’s post turtle at some time in your life.
