If you are asking for a favor, often the response you will hear is, “It’s not the right time.”  It’s really just an excuse as they have no desire to help you with whatever you might need.  When we were young our parents continually told us when we asked for almost anything it wasn’t the right time.  Whatever it may have been such as a ride somewhere, take an after school program such as dance or a sports activity, new shoes and even new clothes, the answer was always the same.  Did you ever feel like they just couldn’t be bothered or they were really short of cash and didn’t want to tell you the truth?  Today, so many parents are attached to their phones that it really is an excuse.  Everywhere you go people are continuously on their phones.  They have shows on the TV with people walking into each other, walls, and even falling off a curb.  Many of the movies include that scenario in their themes as well.  My question always was, “When is the right time?”  Then there are even more excuses.  Many people use that because they are afraid to leave a job they hate.  Brave individuals press on and seek new employment so it will be the right time.  There are also the individuals who are treated so poorly at their jobs that they have no options but to leave.  Money is important but so is your self respect.  In the Good Gus series all times were the right times.  If you are wrapping gifts for the children in your life remember Mae’s Story Time on You Tube is a great distraction plus a wonderful chance to see if the young readers like the series (always available on Kindle).  Don’t forget the quick gift for the adults who are difficult on your Christmas list of “Misplaced Trust” which is available on 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
