“Well,” Stan said, “you did tell him you could realistically finish by early June and it’s already mid-August.”
“But if I had just a bit more time, I know I could deliver,” Alan said.
“Did you tell him that?” Stan asked.
“Yeah, I did,” Alan said, “but he told me there was no room in the schedule to push the delivery date out any further.”
“So basically it’s all over and he’s canceling your contract for breach, huh?” Stan said.
“I want you to sue his pompous ass,” Alan said. “He’s deceiving himself if he thinks he can get away with this.”
“Actually, Alan,” Stan said, “I’m sorry to say this, but as your attorney, I have to tell you that you’re the one who is deceiving himself if you think you can be more than two months late on a contractual deliverable and prevail in court.”
