Irony

In nursing, and more particularly the nursing of those who can be violent (my area of nursing experience), it is really important to bear in mind that past behaviour is a good indicator of future behaviour. For instance, if at mealtimes a guy knocks the table 5 times with his spoon then throws the table over, it’s not going to take you long to connect one event – if it is repeated – with the next is it ?

This is why I’m very careful about who I can trust, who I’m prepared to trust a bit, and who I do not trust at all. Recently, the behaviour of someone who I thought I could trust altered, and as such all my trust, any respect and any goodwill evaporated. I believe that his behaviour then is indicative of his nature and personality. So it was with a measure of irony that I read this on his blog – it’s part of his header:
“”Humans have a phrase: ‘What is past, is prologue.’ “Minbari also have a phrase: ‘What is past, is also sometimes the future.'”

Make of that what you will……….
