It's so frustrating when you try to do something good but make a mistake and it all goes sideways! Or when a relative or friend does something meaning well but what happens is neither intended nor positive. You know your heart, and theirs, was in the right place, but the end result was not a good one, and sometimes makes matters worse. Do you have a story to share? I'll start.
My very sweet DIL doesn't eat a few foods I commonly use as ingredients. Recently I made a salad and left off one ingredient I knew she didn't like. However, I included another one she disliked, too. Fortunately, she was very polite and because it wasn't a tossed salad she was able to avoid the particular food she didn't eat. I did try, I just missed the mark.
Yesterday I asked DH to cut down a weed tree that had volunteered in our garden right next to a desirable native tree we had planted about 8 years ago. Well, he cut down the wrong tree (I'm not sure how he managed that, as the tree he was supposed to cut down was covered with yellow flowers, which I pointed out to him, and the other tree had no blooms of any kind.) I didn't yell at him for cutting down the wrong tree, because he got confused as they were growing so close together, altho once the flowering tree that remains is removed (it'll take over the garden if we don't get rid of it ASAP), it'll leave a big gap in our border plantings. I know his heart was in the right place - next time I'll just have to watch him more closely.
