Don’t Make Me Sell Something You Can’t
“Meet my friend/husband/sister/coworker. Can you tell them about how awesome X is?”
I get this from time to time. I hate it.
X can be unschooling, writing, economic freedom, cryptocurrency, podcasting, or any number of things.
It’s not that I don’t like discussing stuff I’m interested in, it’s that I don’t like doing it with unwilling audiences. (This is one of the reasons I could never be a professor.)
If you drag someone to me kicking and screaming and ask me to get them interested in something you haven’t been able to sell them on, I’m gonna politely pass every time.
I only like preaching to the choir. They came for the sermon. I’m not interested in hounding poor souls just trying to go about their day.
