I don't know why it's so damn hard to take me at my word when I say something.  Seriously.  I'm getting kind of sick and of, among other things, declining something because I can't afford it and then having someone try to convince me that it's not that expensive and because they're buying it/doing it/going to it/etc that I really should.  I don't decline something and say I can't afford it because I can afford it.  I say I can't afford it because I can't.  

I'm getting sick and tired of people who won't answer questions when we're having a conversation.  Rather than either answer it or say that they aren't comfortable answering it, I get the runaround.  If the conversation of electric bills comes up and I ask you what yours is, either tell me or tell me it's none of my business, don't beat around the bush.  It's tiring and it makes me not want to ask you anything.

I'm so sick of people thinking I have a hidden agenda* or an ulterior motive.  I really don't.  I don't have the time nor the energy to play that game.  I am the person you see.  I've got nothing going on behind the scenes.  Ain't nobody got time for dat.

I try not to be jaded and think of friendship as a two-way street, but maybe I'm just naive.  And people wonder why I don't want to leave my house.

*Unless stalking people's pictures on Facebook for shirtless shots counts as a hidden agenda, but then again, I'm pretty open about that.  Never mind.

Jesus. Will you just move to Austin already? Everything you say you want is right in front of you. And, for the record, my electric bill is $90/mo. I have it annualized, so every year it goes up or down depending on the previous year's use.
