    there's a lack of sympathy

    Politically there's a lack of sympathy between us.
    I need some further examples with the phrase "there's a lack of sympathy".
    Thanks.

    Re: there's a lack of sympathy

    It's kind of a clunky phrase, but here are a few examples.

    Your actions demonstrate that there's a lack of sympathy on your part.
    There's a lack of sympathy from my teacher when I don't finish my homework.
    Sometimes I feel like there's a lack of sympathy from my wife regarding my need to fish.

    Re: there's a lack of sympathy

    In Skrej's first example, "that there's" could be omitted without any change in meaning.

    Your actions demonstrate a lack of sympathy.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
