An “Expectation Frustration” Limerick

Life may be like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get. And sometimes, Life is just like a box of chocolates that has been sitting in the car in Houston all day in August. Then you do know what you’re going to get – a sticky mess that you need to clean up. You can piss and moan and blame someone for it, but none of that changes the fact that the mess isn’t going away until somebody does something about it.

On way too many occasions, I have observed lots of pissing and moaning and blaming and then walking away from the mess hoping that someone else will clean it up for the person who made it. I was thinking about that today and it led to this –

Sadly, this is a source of frustration.
When people faced with a tough situation
Shirk responsibility
And it’s fait accompli
That they lived down to my expectation.
