Just when you think you’ve seen and heard everything, something else astounding happens.
Here’s the story. Someone offered to do something really nice for me; let’s say she was paying for a trip I wanted to take but couldn’t afford. I didn’t ask her to pay. She volunteered and told me she was “my angel.”
I thanked her 400 times and started moving ahead with my plans. She made a one-third deposit on the trip.
One week before I was scheduled to take my trip, she called to tell me why she could no longer pay for the whole trip and told me I needed to find someone who could pay the rest.
Her reason what flat-out lame. It was also concocted from whole cloth. I either had to cancel the trip or find someone else who could help me. I decided to call her and tell her I’d pay half of the difference (which I couldn’t afford) if she’d pay the rest.
I am waiting for an answer.
The above is a true story. I really wasn’t taking a trip, but I was planning something else. I used the trip as an example to protect the guilty.
