Note: No connection with the first part as such , you can even go ahead and read the first part( if you haven’t already) after you read this , if you think it’d be worthwhile reading J :D
“Asking the same question over and over again , doesn’t change the answer , does it?”
People have a habit of testing other people’s patience by stating or interrogating the same things , again and again and again. I don’t know about you but that does bother me “at times”.
It’s like : “What is your name?”
“Ok , then , What is your name ?”
“Ahh , I get it..Cool , So what is your name?”
Not that the above conversation has ever happened ,it kinda serves the purpose :p I used to go ahead with a “Yes” nod , all the time. I still do. But there are times when it is just not the right time. And you know what I mean by that. Being an extrovert has it’s advantages but more of disadvantages in this particular case. You , a people pleasing person can’t just say “No”. It’s like a Priest chanting Satanic prayers. You can use it to your advantage as well . If an extrovert says “No” , they would feel a little taken aback , but they will just let it go because they know you are a type of person who can say anything to everything .So you refusing is gonna fade away as a joke eventually and does serve your purpose too. :p
“You are a people pleasing person doesn’t mean you go ahead and do something that makes you unpleasant.”
So here are some funny , sarcastic ways or Voiceovers(the lines playing in your head) that I found from various places and some are added by me too ,so it goes like this :
Ø I will take a pass. I have some personal work.
Ø I hate seeing the outside world after 5...it freaks me out.
Ø I have been very busy lately....so would rest for sometime maybe.
Ø Can’t lend you that , might need it this weekend.
Ø Have already promised somebody else.
Ø It isn’t something I really dig.
Ø Yeah..it seems cool but done that already!
Ø Feel like just doing some indoor stuffs today.
Ø My “God” wouldn’t be cool with that
Ø I’m shipping out of here on a cargo rig
Ø I just got crop dusted and have to flee
Ø I’m too high to even step out.
Ø Ohh , can’t give it you , “xyz” has already asked for it.
Ø Two words: licking batteries
Ø Already crazy enough thanks
Ø Lets table that for the time being
Ø Lets circle back to that
Ø Not a good time, maybe next time.
Ø You must be talking to one of my other personalities
Ø I don’t do anything that isn’t virtual
Ø Will you wear this?
Ø My fly eyes are indicating a “no”
Ø I am actually inventing a new color at the moment
Ø Probably not
Ø I’m not really talkative
Ø I actually don’t like other humans
Ø Go die over there
Ø Will get back to you on this later , but not today.
Ø Not in a good mood. Later on this month for sure. :p
Saying a “No” doesn’t mean that you are an arrogant , rude person. It just makes you say “Yes” to yourself most of the time. But if you are in a position where an individual needs your genuine help , then don’t even take a second to say “Yes”. I guess we all would do that without even thinking about the consequence. And such consequences are worth it , I’d say. J
“Be helpful or useful , not used!”
