Pet peeve indeed, and it’s one of the reasons that I (for years) haven’t bothered to get on the phone with ANYONE, because it’s just so damned AGGRAVATING.
And the problem has just gotten accentuated these days. I don’t know what it is with a lot of folks these days, but “leech” is the term that comes to mind.
Literally nothing going on in their own lives, and an attempt to “vicariously” live through “this interesting person” (yours truly) and that is fine, but only until a level!
Hey, I get it.
I have an unconventional lifestyle. Some say bozo like. Some say rock star like. Most say “I wish I had this kind of lifestyle” And so forth.
And as my fans grow globally (and I’m very grateful to them), so does the other category I mentioned above, and I’m grateful to them too, albeit for a different reason, hehe.
This afternoon I posted something on my Facebook account about the PRC’s insistence on going to war with everyone in the world.
One fine reader piped up. Again. He’s asked me the same question and in the same irritation manner about a bazillion times already via PM, mind you.
“Will they go to war with India?”
My first response was to tell him, dude, I’m not exactly sitting on the cabinet of Xitler am I.
And even if I were. I mean really. Dude. You’ve asked me this about a dozen times, and it ain’t nothing you can’t research yourself and find out.
Basic common sense. And when someone says it like is with the right energy, along come the LEECHERS to leech off your time, and energy.
For freeeeeeeeeee ….
“I’m just worried, so I ask”, he replied in an equally lame attempt to not address the point I made above.
“Worried? More like bored”, I laughed.
“Have a whiskey on me”, I quipped. “Done!”
And this sort of thing happens all the time, more so these days.
Remember the lady who messaged me out of the blue wanting to “just lose 10 kgs, so pay 10% of the price for the 0 Excuses Fitness System”?
I bet you do!
I told her no. Figured that woul be that.
But it wasn’t. It led to questions. More questions. More incessant pestering and badgering. And more rubbish from a person that neither had any intention of buying, even at 10% nor any will to improve herself.
And it is THESE energy leeks that irritate me the most, my friend.
Yes, I spelt “leek” correct!
It isn’t so much the annoyance, the waste of time and so forth, or the repetitive nature of certain BS questions.
It isn’t so much becoming (these people want it) a “question box” for bored idiots (Bozo you know who comes to mind) with nothing better to do than to sit and home and twiddle their thumbs all day, aimlessly either Tom Tomming or listening to the sh-news …
It is that they are looking to get more and more and more from you – for FREE!
“Rahul, please provide your opinion on this!” went a comment on Twitter (apparently I was supposed to judge a T shirt someone made, and for what?).
You guessed it.
Zilch. Zip. Nada. Zero. Ughhhhhhh.
Folks, there ain’t no gravy train here. I’ll tell you that much. ?
You either got it or you don’t, and if you GOT IT, truly have what it takes to succeed and make the best of yourself, then you don’t ask meaningless endless questions. (all questions are answered on the site anyway for those that bother to READ).
You pull out that credit card, and you get the product – and you get to WORK.
That’s just how it goes my friend. Anything else puts you on either the “ugh” or (growing by the day) BLOCKED list – and for a damn good reason!
Ok, off my soapbox for now, but it’s TRUE. Hehe.
Last, but not least, seems that old favorite “Advanced Hill Training” is going GANGBUSTERS these days with people being stuck at home yet again (did we ever leave, Ihear you asking, and I know. I know!). If you’re looking to lose weight RAPIDLY, grab this course NOW.
And that’s that from me. Back soon!
