Rebel Without a Cause
Tim: “I told them I’m not going to do that. We have a policy, and I’m sticking to it.”
Tim: “It’s not that you break them–you’re more ‘What? There were rules?’”
Me: “Good thing I’m filled with a fear of consequences, eh?”
Tim: “Keeps you honest.”
It’s true. I don’t follow rules because they’re rules, or because I’m a “good girl”. I follow rules because I fear the consequence if I do not. And sometimes not even then, if I feel: 1.) the consequence won’t be that bad, or 2.) I can get away with it. Having also been given talents for reading people and lying, I get away with a lot. This is probably a bad thing–but oh well.
So there’s something about me that maybe you didn’t know. I hate rules. And I’ll break them if given the opportunity. For no reason.
