You know, today, I figured it is the end for me to be nice.
I purchased an ice cream cake for a girl at work in regards to her birthday on the weekend. When she comes in at work (0000h, tuesday morning), she started to complain about her birthday (she is 19 now). I listend and explained to her that I never had a birthday since I was 14, and she should be at least happy that her friends acknowledged it. She ignored that and continued.
I showed her the ice cream cake and she seemed happy at the moment, and she was (I suppose). But she said afterwards "where is the plates and forks and knife?" I explained I looked high and low and cannot find any at work, thus we should put this away and wait. She continued to complain about it. What made it even worst is that everyone at work that walked by said the same thing "well, you where nice to bring in a cake, yet no plates or anything?". I got furious. Yes, I dropped the F bomb more then once, but I had enough of it.
I am tired of being the nice guy. I am tired of having no F'n girlfriend and being called names all the time. I am tired of not sticking up for myself.
They had the gull to ask my why I was upset. I told them that was the last time I am doing anything nice for anyone. I told her she should be thankful I even thought of her, and then told her to just chuck the cake away, as it means diddly squat. She got upset and wont talk to me and ran off into the warehouse. The other guy (also by the name of Mike), said that she is thankful and I just took things too seriously. I explained to him when I try something nice, no one appreciates it. And really, no one does. The only person in my life that actually appreciated something I gave them is my best friend Bryden. When I bought him a MP3 player, he said no one has ever done that for him. He was grateful and I was happy that he was. But no, no one else is.
You know, I am really sick and tired of my life in the present moment. I try my best and everyone shits on me. Everyone tells me how rude people are in the US, Russia, China, etc etc, yet they barely think of themselves in the manor.
I will just say this to everyone who is reading....Being nice gets you nowhere in life. If you let people through and treat you like crap, not only will you not get a girlfriend/wife, you will have pretty much no friends either. And living a lonely life is a shitty life.
Food for though. My 2 cents.
