Normally, I post once a weekday unless I'm in some sort of mood. Today's bonus post centers on the phrase "let me make it up to you". I'm like a college professor you don't wanna take; there are no make-ups.
If I ask you to do something for me, it's probably something I could do myself but it would make my life easier if someone else did it or it's something I simply cannot do on my own and get the desired results. But if I ask you for something, it's for when I ask you/when I need it by. I want what I want when I want it.
That might sound bratty, but if you fail, I will find other ways or go without. Don't come to me next day on some make-up shit. The need has expired and I don't want you half-assed attempt at reconsiliation. I'm not mad you didn't come through for me. I'm over that. I'm more annoyed at the after-the-fact shit. I don't want/need it no more and it probably impacts on what I had planned for myself moving forward as I've found that you are of no help. Just let the shit go. I have.
Nene eye would forever be talking "let me make it up". How bout you still owe me make ups for times 3, 4, and 5. I don't see people as having debts with me so stop trying to rack them up. Either you did or you didn't but you don't have a negative balance. Just come through next time, if there is a next time.
Shit is never "made-up" anyway. What takes the place of having something when you needed it? Nothing makes you have a sandwich packed for your lunch when you're rushing and don't have time but someone is making sandwiches anyway and you hadn't been paid yet so you had no $. And whatever, I didn't die. But don't chase me down on payday with a lunch prepared when I have plans to eat out after carrying my lunch all week and then act hurt when I say I don't want it.
That was the simplest example I could think of. And yes, I know I'm a spoiled brat and that was a petty example but whatever.
