Let's imagine that someone in your life made what you believe to be an error in judgement. And then, let's say, that in order to help this person, you spent a lot of time and effort to make sure that things stayed OK for that person, despite their making this judgement call that anyone could have told them would maybe not work out the way they would like. Let's say that, hypothetically, you went above and beyond the call of duty in making everything as OK as it is in your power to make it for them, making some sacrifices that this person hadn't even asked you to make, because you saw that for things to be OK, the sacrifices would have to be made. And let's say that, in fact, the end result was that everything turned out alright, even though it meant that you were under quite a bit of pressure, because you really wanted badly to make things OK for this person.

And then, let's say that, theoretically, this person does not thank you in any way. Let's even imagine that this person in fact berates you for not making things OK sooner than you did. Let's say that, in order to make things OK any sooner, you would have had to break the laws of physics.

Well, that would be annoying, wouldn't it?

Hypothetically speaking, of course.
