How often are expectations, what we anticipate and wait for with apprehension, dashed by a reality that falls short? While it is true that the reverse can also happen, by falling on real unexpected strokes of luck, it is certainly more common to experience the feeling of disappointment that stems from unfulfilled hopes. Let’s take the example of online shopping who has never seen an item that seemed perfect to them, never put it in their basket and never proceeded to payment, only to have an item delivered to their home that does not nothing to do with the image seen on the site? Or to order a job by giving precise instructions which are not followed? But certainly the most infuriating thing is food, one of the greatest pleasures of the food purchased does not correspond to what is presented on the packaging , which made our mouths water, it is difficult to keep calm!
