Tact and Tactics
In a world full of “friends” via social media, in reality, I consider a handful of people to be close, personal, friends. Friendships are crucial to life. These special souls are ride-or-die. All-in for the good and the bad. No judgements. Just love.
But when a friend tries to extort you through their child? Not cool. While I try to financially contribute to a project, or buy somebody’s cookies and candies, sometimes the funds aren’t there.
While you may think it’s cute to leave a voicemail that says: “Call me back.” And I do, then you say your kid needs to ask me something, and you put your kid on the phone, and that something you’re asked is: “Can you donate to my_______________?” in that cute, little kid voice.
What. The. F*ck!?!?
It’s not cool to put me on the spot in that manner. Who can say “no” to a kid? Great sales tactic, bad friend tactic.
