I admit it I am bossy.  I try not to be, but it happens.  When I observe someone, doing something, and I think it could be improved, I can't help but make a polite suggestion.  Okay, maybe I could help myself, but duct tape might have to be involved. 

One day in a bit of pique because I had been called bossy for the millionth time, I quipped, "I am bossy for the greater good."  I meant it too, I am never bossy just because I can be.  I am bossy because I think I am helping.  If bossy was my super power, I promise to only use that talent for the good of humanity.  I swear.

One of my dear friends heard me use that statement as a defense on charges of being too bossy.  She and her partner decided I needed a shirt for Christmas proclaiming my proclivity.  They even further branded the shirt by putting a signature flamingo on the front of the shirt.  Needless to say I love it.

I loved the new shirt so much I wore it the next day to go shopping.  At least three different woman commented on how much they loved the saying.  They wanted to know where they could get one like mine.  Obviously, I am not the only one who has issues with people thinking they are just too bossy.

I'm bossy too. I like to tell people that if they'd just accept the fact that I'm right and do exactly what I tell them to do, they'd realise how much better everything would be. Unsurprisingly, there aren't too many people who see my stunning logic.

I think we are on to something, we are not bossy just really helpful.
