It turned out not to be so bad.
I did receive a word of appreciation. Which filled me with inordinate joy. Ish
I did receive the apologetic looks all round.
I did also get the adulation and love of all these various people from various places all over the place when things well almost entirely exactly how it was supposed to be.
My god there were so many suppositories in that last sentence.
But I'm still not happy with the entire lack of appreciation... Etc. Ah well. I am looking forward to my Puma shoes which I ordered.
