Have you ever rescinded a deal

dealI had an interesting interaction with an acquaintance, his name is John.

We spoke a few weeks ago about raises, it happened someone at his work did not get one. She wasn’t pleased about it, I must say she is a great worker.

During a conversation with John, she mentioned to him, based on the lack of raises that could help her, she did not feel she should overwork herself every single night by going beyond her work.

John agreed, she has been going beyond her duties and starting to burn herself out. During the conversation John mentioned to her that if she is going to only do her job it was OK but if he needed, he, out of his pocket, would pay her $20 extra, it wasn’t an issue for him to give her the money. She was surprised about it, but she agreed it would help her.

One night, John needed some help he asked her if she would be willing to help. She agreed and worked beyond her tasks, John kept his word by giving her $20 dollars.

Funny thing happened last night, John needed some help again someone called in. They ended up being short, this time John’s girlfriend approached Angelina and ask her if she was interested to make an extra $20 by helping them. Angelina agreed to help again. She was smiling, she quickly worked to complete her task. At one point she saw John whistling at her asking if she was coming to help. She agreed but she wanted to see the money before doing the job.

At that point John started to get a little upset about it. She was still smiling at him letting him know a deal is a deal. She completed her task approached John’s girlfriend to get the $20 dollars instead of John. She got the $20 dollars from her.

John was upset the rest of the night, because he realized that a deal is a deal. He couldn’t go back on his word, even though he tried.

The question I have for you, before you are making any kind of deal verbal or in writing. Do you realized what consequences you will trigger?

Have you ever gone back on your words? If so, what kind of impact did you trigger?

In a case of Angelina, I am applauding her for sticking to her guns. If John did not have his ego blindsided him, he would not have made that kind of deal. A deal is a deal, if you break it you are going to pay the consequences.

Before you decide to give your word to anyone, make sure you keep your word.
