Well, that was the flood of weekend crappy posts. Which means it's time for... Morning!
 
Now we can have a deluge of weekday crappy posts?
 
Maybe. I actually still think most of our crap is posted during weekends, even though someone once showed me a SEDE proving that wrong XD

Q: How do I make it less difficult for my ex to hang out with me?

magicmomosMy ex is the only serious relationship I've had. We are still friends to the point that we want to be in each other lives. She lives in a different city with her current girlfriend. Her bestfriend from school also lives in the same city, I too am friends with her but predominately through my ex. ...

 
Ah... seems you were right @JourneymanGeek :D
 
But of course
 
Stupid of me ;)

@ExtrovertedMainMan Problem with this is, compared to normal people, we can.
Morning.
 
1:31 PM
@Sarov Can we, really? I just refuse to show any sign I can :P
 
'Can' and 'will' are not the same.
 
To be fair, a lot of the time I also 'can't'.
 
Personally, I have no problem with being asked for help.
However, that's only because when I say 'nah, sorry, I don't know' (which is 50% of the time), I don't get any push-back.
People assuming developers can help with computers isn't the problem.
People asking for help and then getting mad when you're unable to help is the problem.
(Actually, I remember reading a SE post about this... shouldn't that question be closed as duplicate?)
 
@Sarov Meh. I decided against it because this one was explicitly asking for 'what to say' and I don't want to taint that old question further (it's already not the best example wrt including what you've tried and such)
 
Ahsee.
 
1:43 PM
@Sarov Yeah. But you help once and then people keep thinking they can ask you... but you're right, it's more a general matter of people not accepting no for an answer, for whatever reason.
 
My suggestion - the first time someone asks for help, say no. "Sorry, too busy right now" or "I think I fixed that before but don't remember how". If they really need help, they'll ask again later (depending on how you phrase the 'no'), but you've already set the tone that 'no' should be an expectable response.
 
Heh. So a reversed Ben Franklin effect ? :P
 
THAT'S the name of it! I was looking for that a couple weeks ago but couldn't remember what it was called. Thank you, you've been a big help! :D
(Evil laughter)
 
... meanie.
 
:P
(Srsly though, I really was trying to remember the name of that. Thanks. :P)
 
1:55 PM
Still not going to say 'you're welcome' because of that ben franklin effect :P
 
Hahahaha.
BUT YOU'RE THINKING IT!
YOU CANNOT ESCAPE YOUR BRAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIN!
 
But can my brain escape me?
 
Hopefully not.
Also, clearly the OP did not understand why the question was closed. I tried to add comments explaining.
 
Oh good!
 
But yeah - I never really thought about it, but I guess that kinda is a reverse Ben Franklin effect.
 
2:01 PM
Maybe there's research.
I should look that up once I'm done with all the moving places stuff XD
 
Heh.
 
2:46 PM
So, how is?
 
Chaotic... I think I have as much mental capability as the dementor at this moment. Things to do, things to keep track of, things to organize... but only two weeks more, and I'll be in my own apartment, keeping quiet and pretending I don't exist.
 
External memory is your friend.
 
and you?
@Sarov I have five different lists going at the moment ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell Is monday.
 
Yeah, on top of everything, it's monday XD
 
2:52 PM
But on the plus side, now I know the name of the Ben Franklin effect! :D
 
XD If you keep repeating it like that, you decrease the chances of forgetting it again ;)
 
Ayyep.

Piece of bread, 1/2 a chicken burger, 2 sausages, 3 chicken fingers, some broccoli, and 1 piece of cauliflower.
Breakfast of champions?
 
5:40 PM
Sounds more like leftovers to me
 
 
1 hour later…
6:47 PM
All ready for furniture tomorrow :D
 
@Tinkeringbell It was both!
 
:P It seems like a very heavy breakfast to me... but I'm happy if I can manage to eat a whole banana about an hour after the alarm clock went off :P
 
I mean, I eat breakfast 5 hours after I wake up, so.
 
By that time, it's lunch... I think I could manage that for lunch, though it's still looking more like a dinner :)
 
What is this 'lunch' you speak of?
 
6:53 PM
second breakfast?
 
But there's only one breakfast! It's when you break your fast.
You know, around noon.
 
It's like quitting smoking... you quit smoking between each cigarette.
 
That's... no.
 
logic!
 
No.
 
6:56 PM
it works... admit it.
 
I refuse.
 
You disappoint me.
 
You're welcome.
Not everyone can get such premium disappointment so easily, you know!
 
Not sure if you should be giving out so freely then, especially not if people haven't asked for it.
 
What can I say? I'm a giver.

@Sarov Clearly sir. YOU ARE NOT A HOBBIT
@Tinkeringbell You madam... might be.
 
11:21 PM
@JourneymanGeek I'm >6 ft and a teetotaler, so it can't've been entwine.
 
11:39 PM
I do have the hairy feet....
