When He or She Won't Take NO! For an Answer...
Why is it that some people just won't accept when you say "no". It bugs me so much I want to write about it. An example that happened to me recently...

I just had a situation with a girl who wanted me to do her hair. I helped her out by doing it for about free and then she wanted it for half price this time. I said no. She argued then said she would borrow the money. Then she decided to change the color, I was bending there. Then she wanted to bring her 3yr old with who is sick. I work at home. My son just got over being sick and home from school for a week. When i said it wouldn't be a good idea being she can't watch her while she's getting her hair done and she's sick. She starts arguing that its ok her daughter just has bronchitis and she is a good girl. I said no and then told her to go somewhere else. I feel bad cuz I'm such a ppl pleaser but good about setting healthy boundaries.
