I know, it's hard to believe this can happen to an STWer but it does. And it really does my head in sometimes when a friend asks for advice/ideas, I offer what I can, and they completely ignore it before moaning on and on about still have a problem.
Example #1: Friend has a horse with some kind of ailment. Has asked a couple of vets/experts but not received any helpful advice. I gave her the contact details of someone I know who specialises in "fixing" horses but has she bothered to call? 6 months on and has she ****. Horse still has the same problem.
Example #2: Friend uses a local garage for all her car servicing/repairs. Garage has been a bit shifty/pricey for a couple of years so she asks if I can recommend someone. As it happens I know some excellent mechanics, so give her their numbers. Has she done anything about it? No. Still goes to the same people and still moans each time.
Example #3: Friend wants some new prescription glasses and doesn't want to pay high street RRP. Asks me if I know anyone. I gave him the URL for SelectSpecs who did my Oakleys for £250 less than VE and turned them round super quick. Has he called them or been on their site? Nope. 3 weeks after asking he's still moaning about not finding someone that does what he wants.
FFS people. If you don't want to be helped, don't ****ing ask.
