There are folks in this world who you’ll encounter regularly who you just learn to map their stated intentions to expected (and proven) reality. Their statements of what they intend to do are reliably more aspirational than what actually transpires. They may often demand full credit for not following through, instead, layering another noble goal atop it as compensation.
I knew one furry who was always going to land a $100k+ government job. But reliably continued buying and selling scrap electronics. If he told me he’d be over from noon to two, I could reliably expect him at 8-9 and he’d apologize that something happened with regularity. It wasn’t a constant source of tension since I just learned how to map his statements to eventual reality.
@LeoBurr you have no idea how much this struck me today.
