I know you’re busy, so let’s start strong. There’s nothing you can do that will “make” someone do what you want them to do. I’m very sorry, but I see no benefit to you if I lie and say that your passive behaviors will magically result in the outcome you’re too scared to ask for. It’s 2021 babes, I’ve neither the patience nor the marbles left in my head to coddle fools.
Flippin' 'eck! That was strong indeed. :-) Thanks.
