  2. Well, you don’t always have to eat lunch at the same place. Or is it your only choice? And you could insist that someone else do the cleaning up after everyone. Or you could look for another job…

    I think that asking the question of “Do I have to” can lead to a few answers of “no”.

    A thoughtful post.

  3. Strange how our ‘do I have to’s’ might look mild compared to our own…grin. Nice post!

  4. Good questions. Leaving your post hanging there allows us the reader to ponder. We do have a choice to all those questions! Well done!

  7. on the surface the answers to these questions were always no brainers for me, but looking a little deeper into myself i realized the only one who can make me do anything is myself — very nice post, particularly the ending!!!
