Occasionally it’s better just to be honorablewith people even if it’s going to hurt their feelings.
This is what I realized the other day when I accidentally caused a major confrontation between myself and others and my guy, then i was only trying to protect his sensitive emotions but I recognize that I made things much worse in my efforts to be considerate, however you see, my guy had been talking about going to a film for the past 6 weeks that I had no interest in.
He was enjoying the trailers obsessively and continuously talking about his hopes for the new production, and on the day that it was released, I did not want to attend the film with him. That’s when I lied and told him that my heating and cooling system had broken down unexpectedly at my house. I did my best to feign complete exasperation over the broken air conditioning equipment and my need for a professional heating, cooling, and ventilation specialist. I even went so far as to talk about what a financial burden it was going to be for the emergency repair maintenance that day. I told him I was anxious that there might be something majorly wrong with my air conditioning equipment and I would have to pay for luxurious updatement parts and hourly Heating & A/C professional fees. I even started pricing out new air conditioning units to make the entire story extra believable! About half an hour after the two of us got off the PC, the jig was up, then my guy absolutely chose my Heating & A/C emergency over his film release and came over to my home to wait for the Heating & A/C professional with me, then now I got a lot of ‘splaining to do.
