There’s not a lot you can do with half the information required, so unless you know all you need to know refrain from committing yourself. People may not be giving you the full facts, probably because they don’t have them and not because they are lying, so it is in your best interests to keep an open mind. By next week things should be much clearer. With this in mind, if you sense a situation is not heading in the right direction, rather than try to establish the reality at this stage, run through a worse-case-scenario and see what back-up plans you could put in place. You may never need them but the exercise will prove useful and calming.
