When something fails to go as it should with an authority figure, it's too easy to blame it on them -- aren't they just there to irritate, aggravate and annoy us, anyway? You know better, though. To some, being in charge isn't just their job, it's their life's work. To others, being in charge is the way they give back to the community. You may be working under someone who wants you to work with them on that project.
