What else do I have to do to be taken seriously?
When someone asks for help, I try to be helpful and offer my suggestions and opinions without any ulterior motives or whatsoever. The least you can do is acknowledge it, I'm not asking you to follow it or listen to it but at least say thank you and you will consider it. I've said this countless times before, I have no tolerance for people without common courtesy. I'm not even that close to these particular people so its not 'okay' for you not to be courteous just because we've become too comfortable with each other or whatever la.
I hope I'm not jut being bitter. But I think others might feel the same way!
