I Saw You

Ungracious Grunt

You came to me asking for help. It was important that you got it ASAP. So I stopped what I was doing and stepped outside my job description to help you. When I followed up with you on your project, you were too busy to talk or thank me, but had just enough time to return an unrelated item you borrowed ... and grunt. GRUNT! When I called you on it, you tried to make it out like it was my problem, and that I wanted a parade for my efforts. All I wanted was a thank you. I didn't get that. Next time you need help, guess what, you won't be getting it.
