Daughter is working hard to devise new ways to
As I sat there drenched in sweat, I thought about (you guessed it), the Trenches. I can't tell you how many times I find out about "little things" that have gone on between my client and their spouse/other parent. Usually, I find out after the "little things" have become big things. Of course, when I have to help the client deal with the now "big" thing, they tell me about the little thing that started the ball rolling in the first place. They tell me how they didn't want to bother me with such a little thing. They say it didn't seem like anything much at the beginning. They figured it would pass, it would go away. Then, when the little thing became a bigger thing, they were embarrassed to call and tell me that they hadn't told me about the little thing. Well, now it's a really big thing. They can't avoid telling me. Now, not only must I fix the little thing that started everything, I have to repair the damage that resulted from ignoring it. So much more work. So much more money spent. All because the client didn't want to bother me about the "little thing" that would have taken less than five minutes to fix at the beginning. Here in the Trenches.
