I heard the following exchange today.
Person 1: Look! I appreciate what you’re doing and wish I could help but I do NOT want to spend that last few months of my life dealing with this from you!
Person 2: OH! I’m so sorry! Look, it’s ok. Don’t worry about it. I’m sure I can find someone else!
Me: So, uh how many months DO you have left?
Person 1: Oh, I don’t know, several thousand I guess. That one works every time.
The last few months of my life..
