Twice today I heard a friend dismiss someone because of something they said when they first met. In the first case it was an obnoxious bordering on hostile comment, and in the second case it was something someone said in their interview. And in both cases, they never updated their opinions of the person, and probably more accurately, has born a grudge ever since.
I forget sometimes that I’m probably always making an impression on someone, and most of the time I don’t think about it. But I guess I should.
