You may even get lucky enough to have your own business, and then you'll realize that money can be a factor in what you can accomplish with that business.
After experiencing these things first-hand, you'll be a little more forgiving and patient when you see someone else having trouble... yes, even when they were supposed to be doing something for YOU... even if you paid them already.
You'll let a lot more slide
(at least, we can all hope so)
Amen to that!
I had to go to Canada (Quebec) for a job I had to do on a computer system. I was younger and eager to show the company what I could do... so I told them I'd have it done in one day. They asked if I was sure and I was like... yeah no problem. So I get there read to do the job only to realize all too late that everything was in French. I don't speak French. Needless to say it wasn't done on time. I spent another day up there in a hotel without packing extra clothing. So... lesson learned. :p
