One of the biggest lessons to learn in life is that you're allowed to say no, and when's the time to do it.
It's a lesson for your personal life, your work life, when you're interacting with friends and strangers alike.
Yet it often feels like we're taught to feel guilty for doing so, from our childhood on: you're not supposed to say "no" to someone, you say "yes" and "thank you".
The other lesson is respecting someone else's no without making them feel guilty.
Well, that was a dour night.
Got a speeding ticket. Was my own fault for going that fast in a small country town.
Cop was super nice though. Poor guy was freezing out in the cold.
Tried to pay it online but it hasn't been uploaded yet.
Tried to turn it around and make it a positive by donating the amount of my ticket to the ALS walk that Dogbomb is doing. End up accidentally typing in and paying double that.
It all evens out, I suppose? *shrugs*
