I'm a very TRUSTWORTHY person, but unfortunately, not very trusting. It takes a lot for someone to gain my trust. I've been hurt in the past, and I frequently have my guard up, but I'm still a friendly person
Earnest, I'm a bit like you. My husband calls me a "Pollyanna" because his basic approach is to trust no one!
I'm not totally naive and I don't take silly risks, but my general approach to people is to look on the positive side. The world is a much nicer place if you look at it like that, and (like you) the few let downs I've had are a small price to pay.
Nice Marisa! The only way to fly! I went on holidays for a couple of months leaving a 14 year old in charge of my very busy retail outlet. I had one guy who was 38, another 78 both happy to work under him.
He had his own shop at 18.
I always take two things into consideration. Actual ability to do the job and passion.
As for strangers, I don't bring up their kids, don't have to go home with them, so I simply assume they are marvelous and treat them accordingly. Works for me.
Thank you. He was a street kid before he came to work for me, but he had passion for learning about motorcycles and a good amount of common sense. At 14 he could, buy motorcycles, sell them and do engine rebuilds. A good start. He was also brilliant on the counter serving customers. Saturday mornings 6 of us would be serving 3 or more customers each. We would acknowledge them when they came in, ask what they needed then collect it out of stock while serving the others. A wonderful friendly atmosphere. I miss it.
Good for you. Most people have such a decent soul that even if they fail it isn't for nefarious reasons. I like trusting people, especially young people nothing teaches trustworthiness like being trusted. I would trust my sons with anything, everything. I would trust most of their closest friends. It is affirming to find that most people are trustworthy.
