I signed a confidentiality agreement when I first started at CAB. And that I can cope with fine.
I'm usually good with other people's secrets (although it does help if I know that it's supposed to be a secret).
Really not good at keeping my own secrets. I frequently think "oh I'll keep that possibility/opportunity/news/whatever secret for a while until I know more" and invariable that lasts a few hours, maybe an afternoon. Then I'm on the phone telling people.
Last night I was discussing something with some friends and we reached a potential agreement over something (which will be decided for definite in a little bit). They both know my dad and I was like "hey if you see him, don't say anything I think I want to keep this quite for a while." That was at 6 last night. They figured I'd last about a week before saying and I agreed with them
Got home an hour later just before seven and I was soooo tempted to just pick up the phone and call my mum and spill the beans. I didn't.
And I still haven't told her. But only because she couldn't come to the phone when I rang.
23 hours and counting. I think that might be a new record.
