I’ve never really understood why people can’t just ask for what they want. Instead you hear people saying, “You would do this if you loved me.” or “Remember when I helped you with X?” I don’t know about anyone else, but when I hear those words, it doesn’t make me want to help more than I originally was planning. To be honest, it usually has the opposite effect. It seems as though people tend to keep running tabs on what they do for people or on their love. What a sad world we live in.
