Does anyone know how to detect flakey people and not allow them influence your planning, BEFORE they let you down?
I committed to working until end of June, but then the house I was planning to move into fell through. So now I have to stay in the same crappy place for an extra six weeks. (Finding short-term housing in Christchurch is like shopping for hen's teeth.)
Lesson: Only rely on promises from people you know and trust. Or, as one of sales colleagues used to say years ago, “it's all bullshit until the money is in the bank.”
