I love how people talk (and talk) themselves out of taking initiative. If information isn't for their specific bike, including year and color, they throw in the towell. If it isn't all in one post, they belly-ache and give up. If it doesn't follow their preconceived idea of procedural processes, they become immovable desktop warriors, frozen in fear. It takes a certain amount of doing outside of one's expectations (your comfort zone) perfected to suit their specific set of circumstances.
I had a guy pull this on me and at 3/4 of the way to completion, he asked me to finish up the whole thing up for him. This, after taking the time (iniative) to explain what I was doing so as to alleviate some of his unmistakable reluctance to get shit done. So, his helplessness was either laziness, manipulation, or just incompetence. I left him with 1/4 of the work to complete, on principle, and he never got it done to this day. On top of that, he's a cheapskate and won't even pay to get it done. He may have a mama's boy approach, but I'm not his mama. The man-child was probably even offended, as I think about it now. We don't hang out much any more.
