When someone asks you a question, respond.

I’m direct
I’m blunt.
I’m Midwestern.
Call a spade is a spade.

I absorb and learn from criticism.
I pick my ass up after a failure.

If I ask a question, I expect an answer.
I’m not asking just to make noise.

I’m waiting for the answer.
Even if that answer is negative.
Even if you think I won’t like the answer.

And if I asked two questions, I am looking for the answer to both questions.

I am sorry if you have trouble offering a negative answer.
Or any answer at all.
Not my problem.

But it is my problem when I am trying to schedule my life and I asked the question for a reason.

The avoidance becomes disrespectful and rude.

My ire doesn’t matter – because I’m still waiting for your answer.

I’m not playing a game, its my Life.
