I do not want to judge people, but I got hurt by the actions of one person I consider a friend. Or perhaps she is just so busy with life, and I am just impatient.
This friend asked help on her website. I referred her to the person who helped me set up my blog. In time, my web programmer friend was able to detect the problem and was able to clean the blog and recommended solutions. They were still half way through the process, and the blogger friend told me her husband (who is a web designer) might get mad if he learned of her actions asking help from others. I asked her what will be our next action.
We both agreed to stop what my web programmer friend has started. But I asked for her kind consideration to pay what is due to the person who helped with her blog. She agreed.
Days passed, and payday came, but she seemed not answering my messages. I asked my web programmer friend if he already received payment, and he told me none.
I felt sad. I did not expect her to act like that.
Then I remember the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
