Flake Ass People
Excuse me for going off on this little tangent. It actually felt like it was gonna be a soapbox rant but I'm gonna keep this shit brief
How many times have you given someone the benefit of the doubt when they don't come through? Or don't do the things they say they're going to do?
"Yeah, I'll meet you at the spot around 9!" "Dude, I'll watch your dog while you're away." "I'm gonna drop it in the mail after work."
When you count on someone to do shit and on a consistent basis they don't do it, when do you separate the person from the deed? I contend that you don't.
A muthafucka who does flaky shit is a flake. It's time to call a spade a spade.
We are surrounded by flakes that we explain away by saying shit like "That's just Johnny". Maaannn, fuck Johnny! Grow up, Johnny! Do what the fuck you said you'd do, Johnny!
"Yeah, I got your message, but shit kept coming up. Sorry."
I'm ready to purge all flakes before the new year. If we're cool, you'll return that call in a timely fashion. If we're cool, you'll show up when you say you're gonna show up. If we're cool, you'll fuckin' follow through. I'm not asking you to do any more than WHAT YOU SAY YOU'LL DO. If you're not gonna do it, don't fuckin' say it!
"I just flaked out". Word... I'm sure there are many areas in which you're downright dependable and efficient. I'm sure those are the things that benefit your own flaky ass, which means your overall flakiness is an act of aggression.
So, I contend it's time to stop separating the flaky act from the person and call it like it is. Fuck the flakes.
