Reading Gryphon's comments reminded me of this saying.
Today's favour is tomorrow's obligation
It's something my sister said to me one day when I was freaking out about 'song requests'. I used to have a form and list and people could request I make a videosheetmusic for a particular song. It started out well and was fun. Then some people began to think of me as their servant and the requests got more and more ridiculous and more and more demanding. I finally had it when I got one email from somebody telling me they needed this ASAP, and when I wrote back saying it would be a while, they got really angry at me and called me names. My first reaction was F@$% @%f and I took it out on others who were not being bad at all. Then My sister told me that quote and I discovered the 'DELETE' button on the computer.
I should write a book "Delete without guilt". It took a long time to get used to that, but to me it's like answering the door or phone, if I'm busy, or don't feel like it, then I just ignore it. Hurray for 'ignore' and 'delete'
