Plans Gone Awry – 100 Words

Some deals look good.

The terms make sense.

But then something gets twisted, the purpose backfires.

Take for instance the deal with Gerry’s Painting service.

He agreed to paint the church pristine white, no charge for labor in exchange to park his boat until it sold. His ‘boat’ was an ugly old thing. Three weeks and it was still blocking the church.

That was a deal that didn’t go as planned.

Same as the one made with his daughter.  “Live right by our values or you’re not under my roof”. Her empty room is freshly painted. A bonus from Gerry.
