Ok, should I be committed for thinking that when you make a commitment you should be committed to finishing out said commitment for commitments sake?
I should probably be committed for typing that sentence...
Maybe I was raised differently. Or maybe people no longer care about honoring their commitments. It's a big thing for me if I break a commitment. I, or someone very close to me, has to pretty much be dead for me not to follow through on a commitment. And, even then, I'm probably finishing it up and dropping things off on the way to the funeral...
So, what is it? Is it me? Do I expect too much of people? The worst part is that I'm starting to expect disappointment when someone commits doing something now. That's the worst part; losing faith in people...
On a completely separate note, I was informed today that I might have to go to Las Vegas on company time in late July. And, I won't be disappointed if I don't get to go because they didn't make that commitment to me.
