Mr. Nice Guy is at it again! OK so it is a few days after my resolution to stop putting my neck out and “saving” and “appeasing” everyone else and I may have broken my new rule. Well maybe only a little bit.
A friend from work last night sent me a text message, just to say “Hi” and to catch up. I replied and he replied right back, this went on for a bit which I kind of thought was odd because I know he works 12 hour shifts and starts at 0445 and this was way past his bedtime.
So sure enough after about the 6th message I find out he is in his car and bored. Why is he in his car? Well because he was sleeping in his car because he had to get out of his old place and his new place is not going to be ready for him to move in, until Saturday.
Now I have a problem with a friend of mine sleeping in their car in the parking lot at work. That is just crazy! So I told him to get over to my place and stop being so stupid.
Now he never asked for help from anyone and it took me a few tries to convince him it was cool.
So he is on his way over – I quickly pull out fresh towels and put new sheets on the bed. Because he has to get up early and there is no way I am going to bed right away I am giving him my room and I will sleep on the couch.
Well then it took forever to convince him to take the bed, he was just going to sleep on the floor while I watched TV. OK here we go again being stupid!
Well I don’t regret helping him out, but my back sure isn’t happy today. I have the shittiest couch ever!
Wish he would have told me or rather that I had known, I would have let him stay here earlier as my apartment has been sitting empty for the past 2.5 weeks! Someone might as well use it and why not someone that needs it.
I think the biggest thing that impressed me or inclined me to offer was his refusal to ask for help or accept it – it was his problem and he was going to do it on his own. He’s a fighter I guess. I like that!
