Saying No To Those Who Impose
Some people have a hard time saying no to requests made of them, and the users of the world have a special radar to help them spot these people.
Saying no -- and feeling comfortable about it -- starts with saying no. Just doing it, even when it makes you feel like you want to shrivel up on the spot so you can blow away fast.
I'm adding a little to a section of my book and I could use some examples of some really rude attempts (or successful attempts) to impose on you or others -- that is, if you're up for giving them! (...hilarious as it would be if 26 people just posted "No!" in the comments here -- and yes, I am totally kidding on that.)
For example, here's a very LA one: Somebody you know comes to your town and doesn't rent a car and asks you to drive them to "a couple of appointments." Because your time is free and a taxi or a rent-a-car costs money.
