It Takes Two!

It can be so difficult to work with uncooperative people that provide sloppy answers & leave a discussion abruptly in é process of hashing up a plan. Especially when the friend we're doing it for is one that matters to us and it's their birthday. Can nobody help with anything. The worst is telling me that there's no point in asking you for help because you're going to be useless. You can't get a cake; You can't help with the present; You don't want to pay for your own meal.

Then- to acknowledge is one thing, but to ignore something I'm asking if you can do, is another. For crying out loud if you don't want to help just tell me you can't rather than ignore me altogether and leave the discussion. Even if you can't make it to the party, does that mean you can't help entirely? I love my friends but sometimes we can be uncooperative whether we know it or not. Yes, I use we because I might be guilty of this too. When it comes to the people that matter, one should go the extra mile.

I was told I'm blowing things out of proportion because I told my friend he was rude for leaving the discussion before we could finalize the plan. To which he replied i was being whiny and blowing it up bigger than it is. When I asked how I was 'blowing things out of proportion', he replied a whole slew of things (Para1Line4) which in a nutshell was trying to say he is useless and I made a big deal probably because I was having a bad day and taking it out on him- Not true.

I'm not complaining that I'm left to do everything by myself because I don't mind it at all. But when it comes to preparing something for a friend on their birthday, I would rather much like everyone to play a part in the process and not let it be a one man show.
