Forget and forget
At what point do you stop letting people say they’ll do something whether for you or with you because they never follow through? Do you tell them the truth about it or do you just ignore them after a certain number of times? I don’t want to think that someone can’t be taken at his or her word and at the same time I don’t want to be thought of as a whiner or a nag when something that I’m interested in doing or having falls through because I assumed it was being paid attention.
It definitely brings on a misanthropic attitude towards what should be a nice offer or an extended kindness, but it’s hard to avoid after it builds up over time.
