WTF Fridays: People Who Say ‘I Got This’

by Shelly Scorpio

What is it with people who constantly spout “I got this” when they clearly don’t? They claim to have things under control and want you to mind your business.  They swear anyone who challenges them is “negative energy”. And don’t accuse us of hating on you, either. You know how we know you don’t have it?
(1)    Your so-called “A-Game” is raggedy and whack as hell – and the only person who can’t see that is you.
(2)    That same whack “A-Game” gets you no promotions and no play – yet you keep trying to bring it. Get a clue – doing the same thing and expecting different results is not genius – it’s insanity.
(3)    You’re reactionary instead of responsive. When you’re called out you immediately get defensive and all in your feelings – and wind up working off emotions instead of facts.
(4)    You don’t even know what “this” is.

When you “got this” you’re responsible and mature. You easily command respect. You’re smart, savvy, and shrewd. You don’t rush in blindly because you’re a master at surveying the employment, political, or romantic landscape. You’re a strategic planner and always have a Plan A and a Plan B. Hell, you even roll with a Plan C in your Bottega bag just in case.

We know you got this because when you have it, you won’t have to tell us.
