We’ve all met them – the coworker with a problem that ignores your solicited advice; the friend who cries for help, then sloughs off your hard-earned wisdom; your teenager who comes to you with dating issues only to tell you how wrong you are. Annoying, time-consuming mutants that invade our world without warning and often spew their noxious demeanor creating a pollutant so damaging the EPA is called in.
Just as Alcoholics Anonymous helps those with addiction issues, we as a society should introduce a different form of AA – Askhole Anonymous – and lead off with a similar prayer.
The Askhole’s Prayer
Kindness will be given, and will be received,
Please, Lord, don’t let them be peeved.
Trusting that they’re usually right, that’ll take all of my might.
And that I may be content with their knowledge,
I know I will be, if only I may ask one more question of thee.
Lord, please grant patience toward those who helped,
And show mercy in their attempts to flee.
