four people gathered for the feedback they dreaded. the four were from a varied background and had no idea how they were brought together for this face to face exchange. in fact three of them thought they had literally stumbled into this rather odd gathering, one was well aware that his presence was deliberate.
the face behind this reckoning kept a very low profile in this world of social media and internet based relationships but knew all about the four standing before him. so much so that he’d carefully selected them to justify their ridiculous claims, crimes and online boasts.
the scene in this dank room as the four shuffled about, finding the corners, had cheap written all over it, bad decor, stale smells and suited the implausible pretext for their presence. the face did not design the scene or mood by accident, it was a deliberate attempt to disarm and distract the four from the real purpose at hand, only the face knew the real reason and only the face would reveal the details, when they should be.
one of the four, a horror film fan was convinced that he’d stumbled into a scene from saw (any number) and was relieved to see that he was not caught in a trap. he had done some pretty bad things in his day, theft, fraud and was rather proud to be misogynistic, homophobic, racist and yes even more, he had left the scene of a motor accident that lead to the death of a pedestrian. yes he was a politician.
the second of this gathering was a vibrant and good looking young woman who took the common law rights of man to mean the rights of “her” only, no such need today, but she brought an attitude that raised the hackles of the men in this room. almost immediately they thought that no matter how good-looking she was, she was a pain in the bum. she was. she had also been hustling older men out of their hard earned in many an elaborate scam, the ultimate honeypot, diseased, angry and drug affected.
participant number three was a very lonely and less than worldly dork that had no idea of how the world was run, who ran it, how they got away with it and how to enjoy such a life. he aggravated nearly all that he met and was very surprised when they reacted, as they normally did. he was a bitter twisted individual that had no redeeming features other than he paid his taxes. and as he’d been working for a long time – he’d paid heaps.
number four was a completely different soul. a male model type with a six pack, tight shirt and the obligatory two days growth carefully sculptured into a “weak as piss” beard. he thought that the world revolved around his needs, as we all do i suppose, but he had some reason for thinking this way. his contract and substantial earnings meant that loads of male and female sycophants met his every whim. not today though !! his defect is harder to see, his frightening and leading role in scaring the young has been swept under carpet.
so the session begins ..
so what’s this actually mean. i ask that you offer a task for each of the four to redeem themselves in the light of modern thinking, what would you ask them to do or change about themselves to be a better person, that’s on the pretext of you thinking they may need to change. so you are the face – please leave your task in the comments and we’ll see how this craziness works out ..
what could they do or say to redeem themselves ?
one – the politician
two – the woman
three – the dork
four – the model
