    I have a big problem saying the word no.  And most of the people around me won't take no for an answer.  So it seems like most of the time I'm coersed into saying yes anyway.  I think I have difficulty saying no because I want to seem like a friendly and helpful...

    Whenever I Can

    I Try To Give People What They Want

    I try to give people what they want  except if it is something I can't afford.   I also sell items people order.  They usually order what they want.
