If I give somebody free tech support and they don't even tell me thank you, well guess what, the next time they call me, I won't answer the phone.

It's as simple as that.

I don't recommend wasting your time on people who don't appreciate you.

Charge them money next time.

Yep. Like a couple days ago I was walking in the gym. Hold the door open for this young kid behind me, he doesn't say "thank you", makes no facial gestures, nothing.

So there's a 2nd door I have to walk through. I open the door & quickly close it on him. And I have to admit it felt good.

this guy and his employee who is a girl bought a website and didn't know how to set up wordpress on it and a theme. they sent me a message basically begging me to help them (begging because they knew it's not my job). ok granted, it's not a big deal and you could probably hire someone on upwork to do it for $5

so I did it and sent each of them a message that the job is done. NO RESPONSE from either of them. no "thank you." no "how much do I owe you" no "you're awesome" NOTHING. i hate people that know you when they need you, but dont know you when they dont need you anymore.
Unfortunately, that’s the way the world rolls these days. Just a few left that understands appreciation

You said it all right until the money part.

Life is not about the money, and never will be.

If you think otherwise, you'll then either learn or not.


OP, just quit communicating with them, because they makes you feel bad.

In case you have a very good day, feeling great, and they come for another task, then do it for free again.

That's how it's done.

Yeah, or just mention a charge upfront. It’s either they buy or not!

Dude, with trivial stuff like this, people can help themselves. Ofc they are ungrateful, they believe it's a small task, that's why I always send people to YouTube. They can find tutorials there but they're to lazy.

I think this thread stumbled into the broader issue of the last 2 generations of people. Not sure what caused it, probably easy access to everything and very little to worry about, technology advancements, not really sure. But at the end of the day, many (not all, but this is where it started) millennials have zero self-awareness and don't even get me started on genZ. They're dead, they're bodies just haven't caught up to that fact yet.

They all walk around like programed automatons, They seem to be incapable of inner dialogue or self-assessment, there is the only external reaction to stimuli.

The question is, what happens now?

when the need to change/fix something inevitably comes and they are too lazy to work it out with youtube tutorials, your rematch will come

guys, it's not about the money. stop saying "next time charge them a fee" that's not the point.
they could have hired someone on upwork to do it for $5
the point is, when someone knows they need you, they are nice to you. but when they dont need you anymore, then they dont know you.

You misunderstood the point.


All real life values, even health, is not determined by money. This doesn't mean you shouldn't work, or make millions, focusing on money etc.

You can stay healthy, happy, alive, feeling good, in comfort, without any big money, in any country of the planet.


Problem with many people is not only in knowledge (because many have it) but with consuming the knowledge, which is completely another thing.


And the real issue happens because people are mentally ill, and that's mostly caused by society standards.

I don't really want to spend more time under this thread, so yeah, I'll just end it here, and you are right actually. That's perfect, check what they say :)

You're on a blackhat marketing forum mate.

If you are trying to be a spiritual guru, then this is probably the wrong place.

I don't need a life lesson from you, nor want one.

OP just has some ungrateful friends.

It's not that strange of a thing.

ok ok one more

those two are not OP friends

OP is losing time to help or charge them, he could gain more in value by reading bhw outdated method for his favorite platform

He even feels mad/bad whatever about the situation, and as a proof you have this thread posted

I am not a guru nor my aim is being one



I told you that you miss the point (2nd reply) and that your money part comment (my 1st reply) is wrong

He should not charge them and lose his time on them, but I am willing to lose mine on you because I can afford it

I can't say it enough.

I disagree with you 10000%.

Nothing I said is wrong.
You just have some crazy personal opinion which nobody cares about.

Now will you stop quoting me and leave me alone?

You're being really weird and I don't even want to talk to you.

Please don't.

Go away and bother somebody else.

you can't do nothin' bout' them, but what you can work on is you,
this is coming from personal experience, as I was brought up with the mindset of "eager to please" and "be kind to others and other will return the favor",

what I've learnt through the years is that it's not their fault for being ungrateful but "my" fault of expecting something in return,
what I've grown into, before helping anybody is, "THINK BEFORE YOU HELP",

do I expect something in return, then say it as honest as possible, if they can reciprocate, walk away,
do I want to do it from the kindest of my heart, then do it without looking back,

at the end of the it is your "ego" that's hurting you, again and again, and again, when you come to this thread, it's hurting you again,
it's not them that's hurting you, it's your memory of them being ungrateful,

work on what you can work on, yourself,
become a wiser person and learn from this,

be thankful to your parents and hug them often,
be kind to other not for their sake but for you own sake,

as by the end of you life, when you think back of how the "kindness" warmth feels in your heart, you'll be happy.
and it's all starts with "you" not them, they, or whatever pronoun they wanna these days.
