I completely agree with you. If people would accept that, there would be a lot less disapointment going around..

Ain't it so. And sometimes even that's not horribly dependable.

i am sick of learning this lesson over and over again. what is the saying about a fool expecting a different outcome from doing the same thing over and over?

thordora said...

sigh...yeah. But sometimes, people can surprise you. Assuming I'm not a gullible fool.

I know your answer to that one. ;P

Seeing Angie's response reminded me of the motto of a colleague of mine: "Low expectations." At times I think it's absolutely brilliant. And other times I think, how sad.
