I spent my morning trying to help my wife understand why people do not live up to the promises.
She worked for a married couple for thirty years, managing their business. Back then, she could ask for help with minor home improvement projects and get all the help she needed as one of the business owners was also a contractor by trade.
That was then.
Now, though he promised to come by the house once again, he has failed to show or even call.
My wife cannot understand this. I had to explain the truth to her, “You’re no longer of use to them, so they have written you off.”
I have a lot of experience at being written off.
