In real life (ie: not forums), i rarely if ever say what i'm thinking, if its negative. I have my nice guy image that's very important to me. Like you said, it gets you in trouble otherwise, and just makes life more difficult than it needs to be.

I'm probably thought of as the nicest guy in my office, lol.

Re: Your time or their's

I usually like to help friends. I'll even offer my pick-up to help them move. We travel a lot, so I'm often not available. And I don't hesitate to say, "That's too heavy for me", or "I'm going to sit down for a minute and catch my breath". I don't hesitate to say, "We are going to xxx so I can only help until noon", or "I can't tommorrow, but I have time next week." I am not embarrassed if xxx is watch a movie or sit in the spa. If my plans that are in the way of helping a friend are not a one-time event, I might discuss changing our plans with DW after I get off the phone or have the conversation with our friends. But our plans are our plans and they come first. That's why I retired early.
