#1 If I said– “I’ll get that taken care of for you right away!”– but didn’t, in 18 years there would probably be no college fund.
#2 If I avoided eye contact for the entire duration of our transaction, I might have a kid who never learns to smile.
#3 If I never came to take your order, my baby would starve to death.
#4 If I gave you a different answer or conflicting information every single time I spoke with you, my household (and bedtime) would be chaos.
#5 If you paid me to fix the same problem over and over and over again without me ever really finding the real reason for the leak/funny sound/malfunction, we’d probably be at the children’s hospital ER for the hundredth time.
#6 If I just didn’t show up for our appointment, my husband would be a single father.
Bravo, I have thought such things many times!
It’s frustrated me for years… both when I had an “outside the home” job and now.
