  1. I just heard this again. This morning onNPR. not sure ice ever called anyone bossy, but when I think of you, after reading many a post (and I mean this win the utmost respect) you aren’t bossy but you are one tough lady!

    1. Thanks Tony, I will take that as a compliment. I have realized especially this year that I don’t need to hide behind what I think people want me to be. I am tough and that is a positive trait.

      1. Gail, in all honesty, I find it a VERY positive trait. We all need someone to lean on sometimes, but we all have to be tough more often than not. You are amazing and I am glad you are realizing it!

  2. There is such a thing as over-assertiveness, of being too demanding or nitpicking. I’m not sure that the line is in the same place for men and women, but there’s a line for people in general for me. I don’t think I’ve used the term “bossy” – maybe ever – but at a certain point, I will tell people to step down.

    Being tough in the face of adversity, meanwhile, can be a good thing.

    I’ve seen this “ban bossy” campaign and I’m curious as to where it will go…
