#1 – of work stuff
– Hey, how is it working with ABC agency?
– They are very rigid, not flexible, not suitable for creative work.
– Well, because they are not a creative agency.
Don’t expect people to be something they are not.
#2 – of partners and spouses
– My future wife needs to know how to iron my clothes
– I can’t do it properly
– Then do it often, do it more until you can do it better
– Nah, it’s easier to get the wife to do it (note: he’s not having any wife yet)
Don’t expect people to do something that you yourself can’t / or are not willing to do.
#3 – of responsibilities
– I’m going to be strict with my future wife
– What for?
– Why not? Things can get messy
Don’t expect yourself to be smart. Please.
