I feel your pain

I hate to be the bearer of bad news. I mean, who likes being a bad guy? And when you have to convey news that may not mean a lot to you but could mean heaps to the other party - he sounded so disappointed when I told him. It must have been a big deal for him. I don't know the full story behind it, but when this guy is calling back a couple of times and you just won't take his calls or give him an answer for three days (and over the weekend too)... it sucks to have to be the one to tell him "Look here, the deal's off." Even though I did get an unnecessary scolding from the bossman because of him, I feel sorry for him. He doesn't sound like such a bad guy on the phone, in fact, he may be even... nice. He wasn't pushy, or nasty. I think he was just asking for some help. And he didn't get it.

Since the decision was beyond my control, I tried to give the guy a soft landing... as much as possible.

Guess I'm just a softie despite the tough exterior portrayed.
