You see, I worked in an environment of technical specifications and contracts and manufacturing, so, well, things HAD to be right!
When I found something that I thought was wrong and needed correcting, I would pursue it, until I was certain it was OK the way it was, or it was amended PRIOR to manufacture.
I look back now and realise, that while I was a junior and not qualified in the trade, I probably saved them a lot of money over the three years that I did that job!
And over the years, I have had a few reasons to be persistent for many different reasons.
I find, as the Mother of a child with a disability and a child who is gay, it has served me well on many occasions.
And today, yet again.
Most people don't like to be challenged, but sometimes it is a matter of them seeing the real good in change or the real risk in not changing.
I do not ever apologise for my persistence, because even if I am proved wrong at the end of the day, I usually find it makes people think, and THAT, can only be a good thing.
