27. When something is not finished
Some people like it when things are finished. Then the matter is settled. And they can do the next thing. If that is not possible, then it is terrible for these people. They keep thinking about this one thing. Because they want this thing to be finished.
A boy doesn't like a specific shampoo. Because it smells terrible. He wants a different shampoo. The mother says: "Yes, I'll take care of it." He doesn't ask his mother any more either. Because he already asked her once. But he still thinks about it. He quickly wants the new shampoo. Then he can throw away the old one. He doesn't have to use it anymore. Then he's done with it. Maybe the mother will not buy the shampoo. Because she forgot. Then it's very bad for the boy.
It happens a lot in normal life. Even to adults. For example, when dealing with different authorities. Like with the Social Services Department. With the Youth Welfare Office. Or with the job centre. Everywhere you go, you have to wait for a message. Until then, the matter is not finished. Certain things have to be finished, though. Otherwise you can't go on.
If many things are not finished at the same time, then that is particularly bad for these people. This can be so bad that at some point they can't do anything.
It's important to these people that a thing is finished. Then the matter is settled. And they can do the next thing.
