Fish Eye Effect
"I let ___ live here too long by herself" (meaning the apartment that I was being shown had been unoccupied more than not)
"I don't think she's very happy with how her life turned out." (she meaning the woman downstairs)
I did think to myself, "Those are some strange things to say." But, I was so happy and excited for this apartment, so enamored with it and the potential, that's all that mattered to me. The first bit of that fish eye effect, of those phrases coming out to the fore, happened within the first year that we were here. And then we were in no position to move. Stuff was happening in other areas of life. Then, there was progressive feeling of 'lockdown'. She has spent the past 7 years trying every trick she can come up with, to get us to leave.
I got the message. Moving along. But not to that apartment, or any of the other ones in that building. Good job Guide Team! Thanks.
