If there’s something that I’m surprised about is how folks not only want your help, they want your help THEIR way. If they’d like a ride to blah blah blah they want to tell you what time is convenient for THEM. If they need to have you work on something, they will insert the word “NOW” as if you are supposed to drop everything you are doing to accommodate their needs NOW!
BREAKING NEWS: When you need someone’s help OR someone offers their help, that assistance puts you at the whim of the provider. There’s nothing to interpret. Life is not always fair. If you need help, you make yourself available when I can provide that help. If you want me to step in, you have to be prepared to deal with whatever it is I shell out. You need to be humble, accessible, available and grateful to receive my assistance.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Today you need help; tomorrow I may need help, can I count on you without hearing the grunting noises you make everytime you are asked to do something? Or “Its my day off ” and the classic ” Let me see and get back with you.”
There’s always OPTION B: NEVER ASK ANYONE FOR ANYTHING !
