confused meme - Asking for a favor? How do YOU behave after asking?

I ran into a frustrating situation recently and typed-out this mile-a-minute stream-of-consciousness post soon after. Instead of hitting “enter” and having yet another post out in Facebooklandia that could be interpreted as a downer, I went with the copy-and-paste-into-a-blog option. Here’s the situation: Co-worker posts a request seeking someone to help them out with something work-related.   1) I reply to the post informing them that I’ll let them know if I can help once I learn about one of the two possible dates for a prior commitment.

With the attention given to the billions of dollars that would be needed to put up and maintain a wall between the United States and Mexico, something that should come to mind is the boarder between U.S. and Canada.
