welcome to plastic surgery addicts anonymous. i’m seeing a lot of new faces in the crowd this week and i just have to say i’m really disappointed
Stop saying “sorry”. Say “thank you” instead.
When you say, “sorry for being a jerk” the other person is forced to either call you a jerk or say it wasnt a big deal. Instead, say “thank you for being so patient with me” so the other person has a reason to say they love you.
Sometimes it ticks me off that people just assume they know the best for me or that I even want your advice. Like I’ll just be idly plucking around on the guitar and they’ll say, “you know you should learn to use the pick. You’d sound a lot better.” Well you never asked what I wanted to get out of guitar. Maybe I don’t want to sound like I use a pick. Maybe I just want to have fun. Maybe I like plucking more and to you, using a pick is better, but when you say that I should do it because you say it’s better you sound like an idiot.
BLARGH. Just let me pluck if I want to pluck. Offering a pick is one thing. Telling me that I’ll become a better player if I use one is a different one entirely.
