The problem people have with Taylor is not that she's bossy and/or assertive, it's that she's also lazy and wants other people to do the work she's supposed to be doing. And bossy PLUS lazy is a lethal combination. You can maybe get away with one or the other, but not together. Learn to pull your weight, girl....lead by doing or at least lead WHILE doing. You don't have to shut up, but you do have to work while talking.
And while you're at it, stop practicing to be one of "the mean girls."
