Or can you..?

You can’t walk away from a cold crap table and expect someone to pay you a percentage if it gets hot after you walked away.

Or can you..?

You can’t sell a home, car or piece of property for cheap and expect to get a check in the mail in the event the value of the object goes up after you sold it.

Or can you..?

You can’t demand future value out of something that you felt was not valuable enough to keep in the first place so you let it go.

Or can you..?

You can’t communicate with someone until the last check clears and then no longer consider them a friend, relative or part of your life.

Or can you..?

You can’t demand that someone give up their dream and make them promise never to pursue it with their own money again and claim that you “believe in them” at the same time.

Or can you..?

You can’t expect a company you walked away from and quit to give you severance pay.

Or can you..?

Simple answer:

I can’t. It would never occur to do any of that. Maybe that’s why it mystifies me so that there are those sho would apparently answer “Sure you can” to all of the above.

I’m not naming names or even saying that the above is more than just a question I have about the state of humanity… I’m merely putting the question out there so I can sleep better at night.

I have to ask questions like these that come to the recesses of my mind or the rust may build up underneath and one of my “fenders” will likely fall off when I least expect it!

But… if that should happen…

Don’t worry. I won’t send you the bill. Good or bad. Money in the bank or no money in the bank. Flood or no flood… I believe I am responsible for making my own way.
