Ever noticed some people need help but just want ask for it. And then when it gets down to the wire, where they must have help, they become angry at someone who they wanted to help them. That really use to puzzle me…until I realized several things.
One, they never thought about it, until the deadline was right around the corner.
Two, they knew they should have reached out earlier for help, but didn’t.
Three, since they didn’t reach out, they decide it’s your fault, you should have known.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we had crystal balls so we could see what the other guy needed help with?
Or perhaps we could wear a sign on the back and front of our shirts that said, Can I help You?
How about you, ever experience this? How did you handle it?
