Trust - This is a word that we often think about in ourselves as
being a trustworthy person or hope people perceive us to be
that type of person when it comes to business and social life.
I am one of those people who never trust anybody, yet also trust
everyone. Okay, I know, it sounds contradictory to the fact, You ask,
" Sonny, How can you say you trust everyone, yet trust no one"?
When someone says " I will be there at 5:00pm. I trust that they will
keep by their word and show up at 5:00pm like they said, not 5:01 or
5:23 or even 4:55, to me 5:00pm means 5:00pm. If you are early,
wait in your car until you know it will take you approximately two minutes
to get in an elevator and walk in the door at exactly 5:00pm. Not be be
analytical, but when you show up any other times, I tend to immediately
judge you on what time you walk through that door as to what type of
business I expect together.
I wait for a bus, it's pouring down rain, I'm in my $2000 Armani suit, the
schedule says 11:37, a very odd number, not 11:30 or 11:35 but 11:37.
I am that kind of person who trusts that if a city ran Metro posted sign
states that a bus will be at the bus stop at 11:37. I expect it to be there at
11:37, Why else would they post it at an odd time such as that?
I worked in real estate office with 80 other agents and often use the computers in the public work room because it is convenient and nice to be surrounded by other agents, I have left the computer for a split second to retrieve a document from the scanner and upon return, some else was on my computer working away. Working on a real estate transaction requires multiple windows open on a screen and to have someone step in and use the computer may have some peoples nerves rattling. I trust my co-workers and my work has never been compromised during any of these events. Not even with my Facebook account wide open for all the joksters who could have easily hacked my account.
As far as trust goes, I take it just as the quote stated below:
"Fool me once, I forgive you; fool me twice; shame on you; fool me thrice shame on me"
