Why do people do good deeds? Why do people engage in coversation with others? Why, when we clearly aren’t actually that interested, do we ask others “oh, how’s your day?” Or “How are you doing?” The Answer? Because we hope that in turn, someone will do the same unto us. It’s that simple. For one to think that this the process of returning the favor is complicated, I would say you’re an idiot. Harsh? Maybe. True? More than likely.
Now that I’ve gotten the terminology and technical details out of the way, I can digress into the part where I start name-calling and slandering others.
As someone who thrives on communication with others, I love getting to interact with people, hang out with them, invite them over, work together, ask how they’re doing (even if I don’t care), and all the general inter-workings that go into a human relationship (unless you’re Charlie Sheen, and the only relationship you have is that between your nose and the line of cocaine on your hooker’s chest). So what irritates me to no end (well, there is an end. It’s where I violently erupt and start calling you a slut, fool, or any other vulgarity) is when people fail to reciprocate. They don’t try and put back into a conversation. They don’t invite you over to hang out, even after you have done so for them. They don’t give a
shit darn. They create false pretenses, pretend to be friends, and then when the time comes for them to act as such, they fall through faster than Jessica Simpson’s acting career.
So to all you passive aggresive people who pretend to be friends with people, but then don’t put in your share to the friendship (that includes those who ‘conviently’ don’t text back when you need a favor, or those that only text you when they need one), I can honestly say you are semi-despicable. You’re not horrible, cause there are many worse offenses (murder, theft, going to see movies starring Michael Cera). But you’re not great. In fact, you kind of suck.
