Missing a Deadline

Oliver: I’ve just had to tell a client that I’m Running behind and I won’t Make the deadline.

Alena: How did she Take it?

Oliver: Not so well, at first. I knew she wouldn’t be happy, so I’ve been in a Dilemma for days: Should I tell her now that I’m going To miss the deadline, or wait until the deadline has passed.

Alena: For what it’s worth, I think you did the right thing. It gives her Advance notice in case it affects other parts of her project.

Oliver: That’s what I thought, too. I also offered To make up for any inconvenience the Delay would cause.

Alena: Did she Take you up on it?

Oliver: No, she said that giving me a three-day Extension wouldn’t Set her back, but if it Dragged on for longer than that, it would put her in an Awkward spot, and she would let me know.

Alena: I’m glad you Came to an understanding. So you’ll have it done by the new deadline, right?

Oliver: Yes, even if I have to Do without sleep, food, or bathroom breaks for the next week.

Alena: That’s very Dedicated of you, though potentially Messy.
