@mlemweb finally, a message for my tombstone
"Here lies Christopher Lemmer-Webber
They didn't have time
But they were capable
It was for a good cause"
@cwebber I really like "I can but it's not convenient," as a response because it lets the other person make the decision about how important the request is, rather than you trying to make that decision - you, as the person not needing the thing, probably don't know best how urgent or important it is! (My partner and I give each other the "I can but not easily" answer often.)
@cwebber is horrible at doing this for themselves, but I'm super brutal about doing it for them. We'll be in front of a person asking Chris to do something and Chris is getting excited and I'll be like "really? What about the 10 other things you said you'd do that you complain you don't have time to do?
