Never got a god damned thing in my life by asking.
Even things everyone else got just by asking, I had to corner people and outsmart them and force them into giving me the thing they were just handing out to everyone else.
And that includes the little things like validation and acceptance. I can only get these things as the result of a standoff. And yes I've tried all other methods.
