Another question posed by a reader: “How do you teach yourself to say no?”
Josh: No. See? It’s easy. I’ve said it twice already.
Elaine: It’s not so bloody easy for everyone, you smug arse. Some people make an attempt at politeness.
Darren: Says the narkiest feline in the pack.
Elaine: I said some people.
Gareth: Name one person in this pack that’s polite.
Josh: The boss?
Gareth: Steve? Steve is polite? On what bloody planet is my mate polite?
Steve: I’m right here.
Gareth: And you’re not bloody polite.
Steve: I’m the epitome of a gentleman.
Darren: Can we natter about the actually bloody question before I vomit on you?
Steve: Uncouth cretin.
Lorcan: The best way to teach yourself how to say no is to practice it. People have a hard time saying no because they don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. There are times you have to put yourself first. It doesn’t make you selfish.
Natasha: Polite, yes?
Josh: When can I turn him into stew?
Lorcan: When you can out-shoot me at the range, so never.
