Well i suppose the header says it all. One of my best friends is in the middle of a major project to bring a business on line. Now I know lots about the web and computers, I have used just about every version of operating system known to man, and fixed problems that have had others perplexed to the point of replacing systems.
So how am I being a bad friend. When my friend came to me with the idea, I thought it was great. I convinced him it was worth the effort. Then the wheels fell off on my end. I got sick for about 8 weeks and left him in the breeze. No matter I gave him the guys I use when I have to much work and he has been dealing directly with them.
Cut to this week. He has just about finished his stock and the website is far from complete. It needs someones size nine fair up the backside of the main web designer, and a warning about non payment should his lax attitude to this project continue.
You see I am still a little put out that people who would normally wait for me went ahead without me. Now its a mess they want me to come in and clean it up. So for once I am not doing that. I am being a horrible friend.
I have so many times bailed people out when they get into trouble, insist to them that its no worries to me. Yet the whole time I am muttering under my breath about why people feel the need to use me when it suits them. Why don't I get the choice. Then I realized I do get the choice. They only get the choice when I let them.
