I haven't had that experience yet but good for you standing up to them! What a cheek to ask for money!
The worst part was putting up with their sycophancy, and knowing that it was all a sham.  I mean, when they start describing me with treacly superlatives, I know right away what they are leading up to -- appealing to my ego is a huge warning sign that someone is trying to pull a fast one on me.


How many people have asked you for money?

Yes, I had 2 boyfriends when I was 22 years old. 1. a controlling narcissist. 2. my husband.

I was extremely lucky to meet that one person in the world who likes me :heart:

Since I got my first nickel at the age of three?  Too many to keep count.

In the last seven days?

Three.

That sounds a lot like my love life although the controlling narcissist was my husband. I’ve only dated a couple people, unlike KK, who is the Don Juan of WP.

You must give off an air of being very rich! Do you have a luxury car and leather trousers or something?

By his air, I always assumed that he had a wardrobe of black capes and a collection of Medieval farming equipment.

Yes, boys ran a mile from me except those couple of years of me being 22 and 23. During that time I got my first boyfriend, the narcissist (although I thought he was wonderful at the time). That went horribly wrong, then I luckily met my husband, who isn't a narcissist. He's just Mr Popular with everyone.

I can imagine KK is the Don Juan of WP. He has that air! :wink:

No, that is a slow week, although I did not count the panhandlers on the street, the spam emails, and the telemarketers at supper time.

Yes, you can't count the last ones, they attack everyone.

I knew it! :lol:

Now we have a strategy. If you go round wearing sackcloth, people will stop hassling you for money :lol:

Ahh . . . no, not really.  There was that court settlement in my favor a few years back . . . word got out . . .

The only person who asks me for money is my ex which is absurd considering the fact that I’m (still) in low income housing and am raising his kid without child support.

Drugs will do that, I suppose. Kids: just say no to drugs. :P
