The other day I spent two hours writing an email, and got zero response.
I knew that was possible, but, I hoped for the opposite.
The truth is, probably, that the receiver is either a) completely incapacitated due to an unlikely emergency, or, b) had already made up their mind that they did not want to agree.
My gut was screaming at me ‘B!’ a few weeks ago.
Perhaps I should have trusted it then if I wanted to use my time elsewhere.
