The road to hell

They say the road to hell is paved in good intentions, and this is a quote that I have always taken to heart, and often use. It’s an extremely insightful quote, and it’s just as true today as it was the first time it was uttered, in fact it might be more true today than it was then!

It seems like everyone is trying to do something good, nice or right, however they don’t fully think things through. People tend to act without giving their actions any thought. The idea pops into their head, and it strikes them as being somewhat helpful, and they follow through with it. Sometimes the idea is good, however other times it can cause more trouble for the person they are trying to “Help”.

Why am I even discussing this you ask? Well, since you asked, I might as well give you an idea. See, I am a fairly busy-ish person. I don’t have as much free time as I would like. It seems as if I am not doing one thing, I am doing another. I am usually always occupied with something, which unfortunately takes up a big chunk of my TV watching and Video gaming time.

Anyway, due to my busyness occasionally, people do things for me, that they feel is extremely helpful, then turn around and expect me to be grateful. The thing these people don’t realise is, that there’s certain things that need to be done a certain way. Somethings I am very picky and I will admit, very anal about, and in the end I have to turn around and fix whatever it was people were trying to “Help” me with.

It wouldn’t be so bad really if people actually discussed it with me before attempting to help me. In fact, that might even be appreciated. It’s when they decide to surprise me, with their good intentions, and when I ask why they did this, they respond with something like “Well, I’m doing the best that I can”. Then, I have to turn around, be all nice and grateful, wait for them to leave, then turn around and fix it, and lose even MORE of my free time.
