If you want, I’ll give you lessons sometime. Manipulating and flirting with male salespeople is like my speciality. I once convinced oil change people to change my boss’s oil first because “He would be so mad at me if I didn’t come back soon.” You just have to not give a…
YES GIVE ME MANIPULATION LESSONS GOOD xD
Nate’s mom keeps texting me and telling me which highway to take when coming to Nashville and it’s kind of frustrating because I’m an adult for god’s sake and I’ve driven to Nashville countless times and she’s really controlling and it’s like if I spend my life with Nate she’s gonna be pushing her way in to every single little thing we do. I can seriously see it happening.
She always emails my mom to tell her when Nate is coming to visit us and my mom gets kind of frustrated because it’s not like we’re little kids. He’s 22. I’m 20. We can handle ourselves and my mom knows that. She knows that we’re adults and she’s like “What am I gonna do? Email all of your friends when you’re like 26 telling them that you’re coming over and asking them if that’s okay? You’re not 12 anymore, you can be in charge of your own life.”
What his mom is doing is damaging and it really really bothers me. I worry about Nate. She’s not nearly as controlling of his younger brother. It must be because he’s the oldest? I dunno.
Bleh. I just had to get that out.
So my car’s AC doesn’t work and we’re about to have a heat wave on the same weekend I’m driving 5 hours to Nashville.
My parents insisted I get my AC fixed this morning before I go, and my mom told me that I should be the ones to talk to the people at the repair shop, not her because:
“1) You need practice talking to people, and 2) They’re more likely to get it done quickly for an attractive, young, shy girl than for a 50 year old woman barking at them to help”
She was all like “Take off your jacket before you go in” and “Remember to use the word ‘favor’” and all this stuff but I hate talking to people so apparently my voice went really deep and monotone and I forgot to use the word favor and I never said that I was leaving town that day….”You are terrible at manipulating people,” my mom said.
Anyway, with any luck it will be done by 11 or Noon so I can get out. Also according to my mom I need to learn how to manipulate people.
