I Told You So

How often has some said to you, “I told you so?” I find anyone saying that phrase to be smug and sarcastic.  There are many times in life where we may seek advice or receive unsolicited advice.  Unfortunately, the advice, unless professional or from a family member with no jealousy issues, will usually be wrong. Then, that one time they are right and you make a mistake or something goes horribly wrong, they never let you forget it.  Those types of people are the individuals who have no real friends.  They always feel and truly believe they are right about everything.  No matter what type of employment they have, home they live in, car they drive, their properties are always much better.  They tend to have an over inflated ego.  They are also horrible in the workplace.  They can embarrass you in a meeting by pointing out if you made a mistake that they told you the correct way to do something, finish a project, handle a client, etc.  It is almost as if they are bragging at the meeting that they are always right and you are always wrong.  Of course, parents generally say, “I told you so,” to their children.  If they sneak out, come home late from curfew, receive a failing grade, the parent always has a reason as to why the child is a loser and failure and they were perfect in school with the highest marks possible.  I think that these people feel inferior deep down inside and use this phraseology to uplift themselves, show off and boost their egos.  Do you know anyone like that?
