“Hi, my name is Joie, I was looking at your profile and I wanted to ask a question. Your confidence is so strikingly wonderful, how do you get past that little voice in your head and the voices of others? People saying how much prettier you’d be if you lost weight and stuff? I’ve struggled with my weight and body image my entire life. I see people like you and I am so inspired and ready to take that leap of faith where I wear whatever I want and then I look up and feel that sinking feeling.
I also would love to know how you got into the modeling industry, I’ve had people tell me I should do it but my parents say that I need to lose weight first… even though plus models exist…. how did you get to where you are?”
The Alpha woman exudes a confidence that follows her everywhere she goes. Don’t get it twisted, a boss isn’t always an Alpha woman; an Alpha woman, however, is always a boss!…
Asking for favors is not a talent. It’s a skill really; you just have to have the few facts down. Some people are so annoying when asking for stuff, you want to say no before knowing what they want. Confused? Here’s a dialogue between me and one very ‘nerve wrecking’ human being. FIY there were three people in this conversation…Her (Z), I and my thoughts (MT)!
Me: Hey Hey
Z: Do you have a Bank Account?
MT: No, that’s why you were admiring my Hello Kitty credit card last week! Who the Heck doesn’t have a bank account?
Z: What Bank do you use?
MT: (First I check to make sure I’m talking to Z and not some Tele marketer) Why the heck is she interested in what bank I use? Oh Lawd what does she want now?
Me: Chase Bank why?
Z: You got some savings?
MT: Who the Hell are you?…A debt collector or the Revenue Services?…asking about my savings account like you fund me…what makes you think I would tell you my personal business…showing up here like you owe me something…ewww get out my phone…why are you even in my life?
By the way this whole conversation was via text…imagine…and the reason it ended is because I stopped replying…because my next reply was going to be like this…
Me: Listen, I’m not a child, I am twenty freaking three, and I am in pharmacy school, so I don’t have time to answer all your background-check questions over text, only for you to take from me in the end. Stop wasting my time and get to your damn point.
Some people have you contemplating your mood to see if you can pick up cos with them it’s always something and you have to sacrifice…Z is one of them. This one time she called me at 10:00pm asking to get a ride to the airport, at 4:00am. The airport is 45 minutes away and nope, she wasn’t offering to pay for fuel. Seriously this is what she said, “But it’s not so far away, I know you have gas in your car.” Yea I have gas in my car…for me, my journeys, where I want to go, when I wish to go…Honey I am not your mother, snap out of that fantasy you’re living in…where did these people grow up?
If you’re a victim of reject when it comes to asking for favors, here are a few tips that could come in handy.
