I'm never there when you need me,
For me you'll have to wait,

I'll provide a wealth of knowledge,
But always just too late,

What am I?

What Next?

Yay, my first teaser!

I look forward to hearing your opinions and constructive criticism.

Nice job on your first teaser! I thought of experience.. because you have to wait to get it and sometimes you wish you had it before you make a mistake..

Again, nice job!!

Very good teaser. I, too was thinking experience, but hindsight makes much more sense.
Jun 26, 2007

Great job! Very clever and your hint is so even MORE clever!

Thanks guys, much appreciated and very encouraging. BTW, experience was quite a good answer, and certainly in the same ballpark.

Eileen, hindsight is the knowledge you get after something has happened, which if you'd known sooner, would have made you act differently.
