Don't Be A But-Head

Dear Insert Name Here,

There are times when various people, including you, come to me with a problem, or multiple problems. Ask, and I will try my best to give you some solutions. Just don't "Yes, but" me. I hate that. Here I am, trying to help you, and here you are, shooting down whatever I say without any consideration at all.

It's insulting, really. You're patronizing me, killing time by making conversation. You're also wasting my time, because you have no intention of following any of the suggestions I make. Ultimately, you are avoiding taking responsibility for yourself by wandering around asking everyone's advice and wasting their time instead of actually DOING anything.

I have one final suggestion that you can "Yes, but". and then I will thank you to move along. Get off your backside, take responsibility for your self and your actions, and quit being a 'But-Head'.
