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.”
