May 14, 2009

I'm getting pretty dang fed up with people thinking their time is more important than mine.


Thanks for listening. Carry on.

Ummm.... I have a favor. Could you please cook a dinner for my entire family and serve us? While serving could you take photos of us enjoying the day and your wonderful food?

Also, I only want you to do this if you are going to run a marathon within 72 hours of our event.

Say it with me: "No!"

Sometimes I ask my wife repeat is a few times just to make sure she knows how. She tries to get me to say it without profanity.

So far it is a stalemate.

No. No. No. No.

Problem with saying NO, is 9 outta ten times, you say no and they try to find a work-around for you.

For example:

Me: "I can't. I'm completely unavailable Friday and Saturday."

Them: "Well can't you do it before you leave or later that night?"

Me: "Sorry, no. I've got too much to do."

Them: "What about Saturday night when you get home?"

Maybe that's the trouble... I just need to say "no". Without an excuse. Yeah, that's it.

Trouble is, I feel that once you say no to someone, I feel they forget about all the times you say yes.

Is anyone even reading this? Prolly not. Prolly better that way!

I remember the trouble you went to making homemade tortillas for my family many many years ago. We went out and bought one a few months later-- my kids now beg for homemade enchiladas. They also enjoying spraying each other with cooking oil, spraying the floor so they can "skate", etc.

So some evening about dinner time when you are thinking that no one remembers the good, take a minute to imagine my kids inhaling a dozen enchiladas while the dogs struggle for grip on a oily floor.
