Have you ever been accused of having an attitude problem? If you find everyone around you to be irritating or you think that you are always right, you may indeed have an attitude problem.
It is true that people may not realize that your attitude depends on how people treat you. If your mom is barking orders at you every five seconds it can be a little off-putting, and you are not going to give her a super sparkly response.
You also may be the kind of person who refuses to accept bullshit and double standards from others. Whenever you call them out on something or point out something that was done incorrectly, they turn around and say that you have a bad attitude or if you’re a woman, call you the b-word. Well, if that’s the case, having a bad attitude is nothing to apologize for.
Of course, it will depend on who says it, but go ahead, tell us what you think is the best answer when you are accused of having a bad attitude.
I would say, “I am having technical difficulties with my attitude today. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you.”
