“You’re an idiot.”
“What do you mean? I did everything I was suppose to do. Why is that wrong?”
“Because you don’t agree with the procedure. You think it’s wrong, so why do it that way? Why not do it the way you know is right?”
“Just because I disagree with what I’m being told to do, doesn’t mean it’s the wrong way. It just means I don’t necessarily my way.”
“It’s not right.”
“Why do you say that?”
“We should be free to do things the way we want to do them.”
“Who says we can’t?”
“Look. Right now, this project is not mine. It’s the company’s. My boss told me he wanted it done in a certain way. Do I think there is a better way? Sure! Is what I am doing morally wrong or going to hurt someone? No. So we do it my boss’s way. Maybe it will work, maybe it won’t. If it doesn’t then the higher-ups will be more acceptable to trying my idea. Either way, it has to be done.”
“If you ask me it’s a waste of time.”
“Maybe. We’ll see. I have to get back to work. Let’s just agree to degree and leave it at that. Okay?”
*sigh* Okay. But mark my words. Your way is better.
I’m going, I’m going.

When I thought of the word ‘disagree’ this is the conversation that came to my head. It’s one we’ve probably all had at one time or another.
