I don't want to - November 23rd 2009, 10:59 PM

What would you do if a friend asked you for a favour, and you didn't want to do it? Mostly because you have no interest in doing anything for them since they're idiots? I can't really tell the person that I'm busy because they know that I'm not. What's another excuse I can give?

Hi there,

I think it would really depend on what the favour is. I understand that you don't want to help them out because of how they are behaving, but if they truly need your help, then it might be worth a try to help them. If it was something silly or something I did not agree with, then I would have to talk to them about it.

You should probably talk to your friend about this and explain that you don't want to do what they are asking. It would be best if you got to the bottom of the problem, because it sounds like the favour is not the only issue here, it is more their behaviour. Let them know that you don't like how they are acting lately and you would be more interested in helping them if they put more thought into some of the things they did. Find out if it's possible to make a compromise instead. Maybe you could help them in a different way then what they are asking.

If you are just looking for an excuse, then work or volunteering is a good one. You could even go out and volunteer to make the excuse valid.

I hope things work out for you.
Take care.

Nat.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
