How you handle sticky situations can tell the world a lot about who you are and how you will be in other sticky situations.
People want to get a sense of whether you will gum up the works or not. They want information they can chew on without feeling they have to immediately spit it back out.
If you want to get rid of those unpleasant qualities that you have been carting around for years---how about considering symbolically going down to the Pike Market in Seattle and finding Post Alley and sticking them on the infamous Gum Wall. When you walk by the wall and smell the cornucopia of gum flavors that have come from all around the world you can perhaps leave yours there as well.
I can not think of a more colorful way to deal with a sticky situation.
I think even Jackson Pollock would approve.
