Thank you’s all round seem to be the order of the day here in blogsville…

Seriously, we are all indebted to someone for something and it gets worse with the fact that that someone never expresses/ expects some form of (for lack of a
better word) revenge from you when they ask you for help…

A few years ago, I was always the go-to guy… seriously speaking… I usually didn’t have what was needed, but because I was always available when someone needed something done, I had built up an impressive resume of friends, relatives, general happiness, and then some of people who would always come through for me because of the small/ tiny/ little things that they needed to be done pronto and no one else but me was available to do it…

These chaps I noticed always had one thing on common, ok, two things…

They were always very demanding/ But also always very very appreciative

This whole appreciative thing made me always offer my er, self for helping out chaps, coz they ended up coming to me for even stuff which I had no idea about….

I remember when Rodney asked me if I knew someone who was fixing satellite dishes…./ And Erick asked me where to get glow in the dark condoms…/
even when Baba asked me if I knew anyone who could repair an EV for his car
stereo/ and haagh, what about when Stacy asked me for help finding out if her
man was sleeping with that cute newbie in the neighbourhood/ and also when
Charity asked me to give Allan a huge hug on his birthday (ok, I might be mixed
up here)/ oh, what about when Uncle Pierre asked me to keep his house for
the weekend, (oh, I wish Ian was here, we tore that place up didn’t we Ian??)/
and also when Emma asked me how to make Big-Lex actually like him….(Ooops)

My point is simple, you learn from kind gestures that people who however as much are strapped for time, but are kind-hearted, will always appreciate the tiny things you do for them, right??

nop, they won’t always appreciate the kindness, matter of fact they will take it for granted and act as if they have a right to it.

Glow in the dark?? hahaha….now that made my day…I didn’t even know such things existed!

Sometimes the people we least expect to appreciate stuff shock us when they do (This happened to me recently I was quite touched)…

See my last post for the futility of kindness.

Hey b2b, Yes you are right and wrong at the same time lol. u would think that people do/would appreciate people who are strapped for time but sacrifice and make time for them…so do appreciate these people, while others think nothing of it as if it is a given that these people should support them with kind words and gestures. The person in which the showering is being done sometimes does not show the same courtesy to one showering them with kind words.

My family and I have cheated death, God keep us alive for a reason, and one of those reasons is to tell the world of his goodness and show LOVE thru our ACTIONS along with our WORDS!

I want you to know that I do appreciate all the kind words and thoughts that you have spoken into my life.

God Bless YOU!

I guess I’m back lol.

My sis is always accusing me of taking her for granted… because i dont say thank you. But the fact is that i do, though i dont say thank you. So what does that make of me?

I believe in showing appreciation in action rather than words because anyone can say thank you so that they can take advantage of you again and again. Is that appreciation? I am a bit confused here… help me out.

Man, I never get appreciated. Never.

Sometimes when I’m all in a fit over being taken for granted, I remember why it is I give of my time, my money and my life. It’s for a reward to which no appreciation on earth can compare.
