Delays and Proximity

SpaceX was delayed a few days. Which, of course, is no big deal in the grand scheme.

In fact, of all the people I spoke to today, not one complained about it. Not a single disgruntled soul. Two, however, were thoroughly disappointed by the tardiness of packages which they had been expecting on their doorstep last week.

If we can forgive NASA for taking their time due to the weather, can’t we forgive our postal service for taking its time during a global pandemic.

People aren’t guilty for letting down our expectations.

We’re guilty for setting such fragile ones.
