Saying that a person is either good or evil is like saying that a person has no thoughts at all. You cannot base a person as basically good or evil because we as people have both good and evil thoughts constantly. For example, we all love the people close to us and we wish them only the best, but at the same time, to those that have wronged us, we damn to hell. We as people have all thought about stealing something or hurting someone, which would be considered evil or wrong, but we also think about giving to others and helping ourselves achieve the most out of life, which is considered good. Chaucer saw this in people and knew that a person couldn’t be classified as good or evil because we are a mixture of both.

He makes the anticipation of bad news worse than the bad news itself.
