"It burst and got on my shoes"
05 / 11 / 05
Usually I make it a point of saying exactly who is getting on my nerves whenever I get into one of my uber ranty posts. I'm not going to this time. Just be aware that it's probably not you as you read this. But if you want to take it personally, I can't stop you.
I'm very tired of being a dog-owner. By this I mean patting people on the head and saying good boy/girl, or some other trivial, half-hearted drivel when I know good damn well I don't mean it. I can't mean it, because the pity tanks have gone dry. So I'm not going to bother, not when the gesture can't be returned in some way/shape/form. Not when words and promises are forgotten, or worse, said on a whim with no intention of ever being fulfilled. And don't expect me to be understanding. If a word is given, then there you are.
I can accept someone being late. I still owe people things, and I have every intention of giving as I said I would. So late isn't a problem. But to act as though such an obligation never existed in the first place, to conveniently let it slip the mind, sorry, that's unforgiveable.
I'm nobody's emotional punching bag. I listen when I can because I want to, because I still care. When that gets taken for granted, when there's a constant withdrawel and no deposit, the account runs into the red and I'm forced to close it.
I don't like to lie, especially when I don't have to. Tactful is one thing, but when I'm expected to perform to a certain template for someone else's sake, consider it quits.
So in short, sayonara.
Sorry, spammers forced my hand. Comments reviewed before being published.

I know it's not directed at me (at least I think not), but I know how you feel. Going through something similar right now, which is why I'm not online much... too drained to stay up, to stressed to sleep.
But I DO still owe you a very nice gift. I need to know what you want, since you keep buying things off your list. ^^;
