I have a friend who wants to buy a truck instead of a house for his family. During our last conversation, he said that he was going to buy it because he’s tired of his kids whining and complaining about touching each other. My response to his decision is: “Dude, I don’t care what you do with your money. If you like living a life of debt instead with material things instead of getting your family into a piece of real estate you OWN, that’s your prerogative.”
My printer is out. I asked a friend to make copies for me. I told her that there were about 30 pages. First, I listened to her talk all this crap. She then asked me why I didn’t go to Office Max. Because I don’t have to. I have people who would make copies for me. I was just asking her because I knew I would see her. Then, she asked me, “How much are you going to pay me?” I asked her, “How much do you want?” That pretty much ended the conversation – literally and figuratively.
First of all, I went to her because I needed help. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t have been asking. Secondly, when people come to me, I don’t ask questions; I help. I know I’m different, butwhat the hell was all that backwash about? Thirdly, if she didn’t want to help, that’s all she had to say; someone else would have done it for me.
I just shared this to be sharing. I pray that I continue to make good decisions and help people with no backwash when they ask.
