While I was finishing up, I realized what had happened. When my wife asked me if I could accomplish the painting in a certain amount of time, my thought process was...
- If I do it now, it will make her happy.
- If it takes a little too long, the worst that will happen is that she'll be a little grumpy until I finish, but once I'm done she'll be happy.
- Once I start, no one is actually going to make me stop before I'm finished... I mean, who wants a mostly painted room?!?
- I completely overlooked the fact that delaying the phone call could be problematic.
