You’ve all heard the expression that’s in my post title, regarding the error of making assumptions. I was reminded of its truth this weekend. I have a pool, and I have a pool service. Today, I’m having a little pool party today for the neighborhood kids. Yesterday, I peeled back the pool cover, checked it out, and discovered that the pool service has not, in fact, been doing its job. (It’s been foggy, so we hadn’t used the pool lately.) The pool bore a decided resemblance to a swamp.
The problem, of course, is that I had assumed that, since the service was billing me, it was actually taking care of my pool. Foolish me. As it is, I’ve been working frantically for two days, and have succeeded in getting the pool almost completely blue, but not very clear. I am quite mad. The company’s president has also been ignoring my emails and phone calls, something calculated to make me more mad. That’s why I’m grumbling here.
So, grumble, grumble, grumble. Pfeh!
