Russ of America’s Rules of Order: Favors

RUSS OF AMERICA’S RULES OF ORDER: FAVORS

 

First: DO call in favors. If you’re the kind of person who says “you owe me one” but then you never actually get the motherfucker to pay you back, then you are a dipshit. By calling in favors, you dissuade the regular favor-asker from taking advantage of your kindness.

 

Second: When calling in favors, don’t call in stupid ones.

 

“Remember when I got you that chick’s phone ? I need you to drive me to Pep Boys.”

 

That’s a waste of a perfectly good favor.

 

“Remember when I got you that chick’s phone ? I need you to testify in court that you’re her baby-daddy. Dude – you *OWE* me one.”
