'Others' can definitely disappoint

It's an absolute fact: I am a creature of ambition. So, when I look forward to getting a lot of plans accomplished you could say I get a tad disappointed when any sort of obstacle hinders them. Especially when such obstacles are the actions and attitudes of others. Needless to say, we've all been there before.

When those parties involved act as though they are indifferent, it can be rather frustrating indeed and gives good merit to the phrase 'If you want something done correctly, you have to do it yourself' .
