I hate letting people down. I hate it more when they lay a massive guilt trip on you.
I was only trying to help out someone else and then they let me down, so I had to pass it along. I even covered for them, don't ask me why. Sometimes I think it would be easier if I just stopped doing things - if I hadn't offered to help in the first place everything would be fine.
New rule: Only help people if it doesn't require getting someone else to help too.
Fuck the to-do list.
