Just Because

Just because are two words that people should never use.  When a parent or an adult makes that statement most people cringe. They are either too lazy to explain or they just be bothered. What I fail to understand that as children we couldn’t stand those words.  Our parental figures would never explain why.  For example, you may have asked to go somewhere or do something and their response was a flat no. So when you asked why they said, “Just because.”  I couldn’t stand it. I never said it to my children.  I think the worst part is you try to figure out why they said it.  It is worse with another adult.  “Because I said so,” sounds foolish from a superior, boss, manager, partner or frankly anyone else.  I guess they want a person to clearly understand that they know best.  It is entirely possible that they do not.   When in a discussion of any type, explanations are often necessary and required.  A person cannot say, “Well I am your boss,”  “I know more than you,” I have worked at this company longer than you and I understand this project much better than you,” or?  It is frustrating.  How is a person supposed to do their job in this type of work environment? There are so many rules today that really are not applicable.  People in power automatically assume they are right and everyone else is wrong.  That is completely inaccurate, don’t you agree?
