As far as people who don't ask (for a recipe) politely, you can just "forget" to do it.

I agree with Andy, too! That is the best way to handle it.

I agree, you don't need to become someone's personal baker, or employee.

I love to bring things to functions, very often co-workers will think that they can just place an order and I'll do it. I've gotten very firm telling them, no. If I didn't do this, I would be working all day, and coming home and baking every night until christmas, I've done it and honestly I came to resent it. So now everything is on my terms. I had no time to bake to give for gifts, which I really enjoy. As it is, I work retail and my days are crazy enough this time of year.

I still bake for friends, but they know to give me LOTS of notice, and are easy to deal with.

Don't be a doormat. Do things for those who appreciate them.

Okay, here we go again. I had an appointment with my vascular doctor. The secretary again screwed it up with transportation. This is so unlike the two women in the office. They have a hard job, but they are good at what they do. And that is a lot. So now I have to make two new appointments. One with vascular and one with my cardio doctor. I will try it again. I am just resigned to all these screw ups. I have to see my cardio doctor before they go forward with my eye appointment for the other eye.

Please God, make me an Iguana so I will not have to keep anymore appointments. I can then sit on a rock in the sun all day and sleep.

Not an Iguana, but our Addie who is sitting and enjoying the sun in her chair with a nice drink she likes and a little snack.

Thank you for the angels. Just think, an Iguana does not have to do dishes, make beds, the kids leave home and never return with the kids in tow, never has medical appointments, never has to cook for the family, they just catch a fly that is in the neighborhood, etc. They just sit in the sun. then at night, they crawl under a rock amd sleep the night away.

But the best part is that they are so ugly that nobody every goes to them with their problems or asks them to do favors they don't want to do. When was the last time you ask an Iguana for advice or a favor?
