You know how you cook up a plan, and play the scenes in your head of how you think or want it to go down. You recite the conversational lines, and hope with all your might that it follows through.
Well unfortunately, the harsh reality is that, it never checks out, ever.
99.9 % of the time, it backfires. People are who they are and react the way they are susceptible to, even if you play all 3 genie cards, wishing for whatever.
Wishes are not horses.
