This is so silly, as to be a little embarassing. I'm not really upset..more curious. I KNOW tomorrow, it will be history for me. I'm curious if this has happened to others (my guess is that it has, and what your thoughts on it is). I wanted to gain access to a company for a variety of reasons. It is large corporation. One idea I had, was in reference to a volunteer position. It's really a long story...and the details are not important. husband has a relative who works there. I had no idea who to call to ask my questions. So, I asked this relative if she knew who I should call, since she works there. She said she did and that if I liked, she would make some calls on my behalf and then get back to me. I hesitated at first, but then thought that this might be a good idea and said "okay." A week later, she emailed me and wrote "I've been really busy, hopefully, I can make those calls on Monday." I wrote her back and said that I was really appreciative and was looking forward to hearing from her. I also said that if she found her schedule too busy, to let me know and I would just make the calls myself. Another 4-5 days went by. Soooo....I went ahead and made the calls myself. I wrote her and thanked her for "Offering to make the calls," and told her that I made the calls myself. Here is my thought....husband says that I'm one in a million.... Sure, I "get it" that sometimes one of two things happen 1. WE say things we don't really mean 2. We get really busy or bogged down and don't have all the time to do the things we wish to do However, don't you think it is unfair to the other person to leave them in the balance why you get your act together? You can't say one thing and then do another or nothing? I certainly would rather a person say to me..."I'm sorry, the situation has changed." or "I made a mistake." ANYTHING. Folks, just don't have guts...integrity...something...WHAT? Okay, semi vent over. Has this happened to you? And if you do this kind of thing...STOP! OUt of my system...many thanks guys.
