    I can’t believe it when you believed the person meant it when she said she didn’t want anything. I never believed it when people said that to me.

    This reminds me of a friend from long ago who told every one at his job not to throw the usual lunch time bash with champagne for his upcoming birthday. When they didn’t he complained bitterly for weeks.
