In my experience it is mostly an issue with Type A personality..

Friendship and relationships go down the drain. It is a huge waste.
I have a friend for over 20 years now..We used to talk to each other at least twice a day and hung out along with our spouses for dinners/movies/outings very often during the week.. .One fine morning she called to say that she is bringing a baby home next week..!!! You can imagine the shock I went through at the time because adoption is a long process..takes at least 12-18 months from application to getting personal background and finances vetted to finding a baby for adoption..
To my surprise, I wasn't angry at her or disenchanted for being so secretive about the whole thing..
How do you normally handle such situations?
We are still friends and meet maybe once a month or so as our lives have changed drastically in last 10 years..
Do you compromise and meet halfway?
I think in most social situations there is no meeting halfway.. you don't have to react to everything is all I know.. It is a waste of time.
I hate it when it is politics, religion or even a Football or Cricket Team that causes Family discord. At times parents and children cannot see eye to eye on issues of studies, boy friends etc.
Don't get me started on my parents.. God bless them..

In life and work environment diplomacy and tact goes a long way. Often the rule is "The customer is right and the Boss should be respected and handled correctly".
The character of the accountant and a marketing person are often at two different ends.


The rule is "Customer is No.1, pain in the arse that is".

Pettiness is just a step away from prettiness.

Yes some are real SOBs. These days the customers are very well informed and they always squeeze for more discounts. Worst are customers that ask discounts and never pay on time or become bad debts.


When the Boss's wife or relative interferes and starts giving instructions too we can only pity the poor workers. LOL

My_view,
You are disappointed your friend held back a secret about adopting a child. I guess the reasons could be too personal to discuss or was something she was undecided about earlier.
But nice of her to adopt a child.
A child is a child and it never matters whose child they are. They are adorable, hopefully they are not pampered as some kids can turn out to be worse than monkeys.

Now this depends, I guess if someone trusts you totally then there will be peace unless doubt rears its head. There is too much crimes of passion.
