Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come

What would happen if a shy introvert lived like a gregarious extrovert for one year? If she knowingly and willingly put herself in perilous social situations that she'd normally avoid at all costs? Jessica Pan is going to find out. When she found herself jobless and friendless, sitting in the familiar Jess-shaped crease on her sofa, she couldn't help but wonder what life might have looked like if she had been a little more open to new experiences and new people, a little less attached to going home instead of going to the pub. So, she made a vow: to push herself to live the life of an extrovert for a year. She wrote a list: improv, a solo holiday and... talking to strangers on the tube. She regretted it instantly. Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come follows Jess's hilarious and painful year of misadventures in extroverting, reporting back from the frontlines for all the introverts out there. But is life actually better or easier for the extroverts? Or is it the nightmare Jess always thought it would be?

The Family Freeloader
21,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

We're all familiar with the stereotypical freeloading relative. He's usually depicted in the movies as an able-bodied but unkempt bum, who lives with mom or a more responsible sibling, refuses to get a job, and spends his days lying on the sofa, drinking beer, getting potato chips all over the carpet, and watching cartoon marathons. But in real life, few family freeloaders are so obvious. OUR freeloaders are professionals. They're subtle. They're versatile. They run complicated scams and convoluted cons on us. They always have their antennae up for any little clue they might find useful. Like the predators they are, they're constantly sizing us up to see what they can get out of us. They're looking for personality traits they can use against us, like gullibility, kindness, a trusting nature, or a soft heart. Even our pride is useful to them-because then they can employ flattery, or 'gratitude,' to get what they want. If you're susceptible to guilt, it makes you an easy target. If you're a sympathetic person, quick to feel sorry for those who are going through tough times, or if you easily empathize with others, then you're an even better target. If you're concerned about other people's opinions and want everybody to think you're nice, that's like a flashing neon 'Sucker' sign over your head. To a con man, if you have trouble saying 'No,' that's a sign of weakness which he can exploit. If we're efficient, or pride ourselves on being 'problem-solvers,' then the freeloader will give us a problem to solve for him. If we have a 'rescuer' mentality, our freeloader will help us satisfy those urges. Freeloaders and con men are looking for 'people pleasers.' Is it important to you to give others the impression that you're a 'good Christian?' Or to prove to YOURSELF that you're a good Christian? We presume that 'good' Christians give to charity, but how do you define 'charity?' Do you think you have to give to every hard luck case who asks? Does your chronically unemployed cousin qualify as a legitimate charity cause in your mind? Would it make you a 'bad' Christian to say 'No' to the sister-in-law who constantly imposes on you? If you equate agreeing to every request anybody ever asks of you, or giving money to every person who seems to need it, with being a 'good' Christian, then once a freeloader gets a hold of you, you're in for a long night........ Written with humor, wisdom, and a healthy dose of common sense, The Family Freeloader teaches us 21 Ways To Spot A Con, the various ploys that freeloaders use to scam money or favors out of us, how they observe and test us, and which personality traits make us seem like easy prey. We will systematically debunk their most common sob stories and surprisingly sneaky tactics, study what the Bible REALLY says about giving to the poor vs. supporting a bum, and learn step-by-step effective strategies for letting go of the guilt and saying 'No' to our family freeloaders. This book is an invaluable lesson for all kind-hearted, generous folks who love their families, on how to avoid being taken advantage of by the unscrupulous among us.

Kinder! Die größten Weltwunder, die bunten Streusel auf dem Eisbecher der Liebe, der Schnaps im Cocktail des positiven Lebensgefühls! Oder doch einfach nur nervtötende, kleine Anarchisten, die Schlaf und Freizeit rauben, dazu zwingen, Disney-Filme zu schauen, und auf das neue Sofa pinkeln? Passen Eltern und Kinder vielleicht einfach nicht zusammen? Was passiert mit einem Vater, der eben noch mit einem Astra-Pils in der Hand über die Reeperbahn gezogen ist, voll überzeugt, dass ein Kind rein gar nichts verändern wird, und nun, ein knappes Jahr später, um 20.30 Uhr die Apfelschorle aus der Hand stellt: »Sorry, ich muss los. Karl-Louis zahnt.«? Was geht wirklich in einer Mutter vor, die gerade noch Karriere machte und ihre Freizeit beim Spinning und Karate verbrachte und jetzt selig lächelnd jeden Abend drei Stunden lang ein schreiendes Kind in den Schlaf wiegt? Was wirklich los ist hinter den Wohnungstüren der Latte-Macchiato-Mütter und Weichspülerduftpapas, der Laut-Laternenlied-Singer und Panini-Sticker-Sammler, das erzählen die Geschichten von Marc-Uwe Kling, Andy Strauss, Xóchil A. Schütz, Jess Jochimsen, Lea Streisand, Christian Bartel, Dagmar Schönleber u.v.a.m.
