I am a complex person. As is most of the human race. To try and determine whether or not you like a person with just one question, is unfair. However, pick your nose in front of me, be unjustly rude to a waitron, cashier or any other person in the service industry ‘just because you can’, be cruel to an animal or child and other delightful traits like that, pretty much means that I won’t like you. Even if we’ve never even said a single word to each other.
But the very one question that would determine if we could build up a friendship?
“Please sit down – hope you don’t mind the dog hair?”
Now that’s not actually a question. It’s more of a statement, because I quite honestly do not care if you mind the dog hair or not. You’re a guest in my home; my pets aren’t. You’re a potential friend in my life; my pets are my children. And so on and so forth.
So please, come on in and take a seat.
Hope you don’t mind the dog hair.
