Whether it's your brother wondering why you didn't call to let him know you'd be returning his car three hours late, your new guy "freaking out" over the small lie you've told,
You constantly use statements like "no pressure" and "we'll see" as a way to keep others from placing pressure on you. What's pressure? Anything you don't decide to do in real-time.
Your fear of commitment is so severe, you can't make plans for Saturday night ... on a Thursday
So what if your friend hooked up with that guy last summer? They were never exclusive. Why is she so mad? People need to get over it.
It legitimately never occurred to you to pay back the money you borrowed from your pregnant sister before booking that 5-star vacation. It's all about that work-and-play balance, yo.
Or worse, you give an IOU or fill out the card as they wait in the other room. Life is busy. Your mom waited nine months for you to be born, so she can wait an extra day for her birthday card, right?
You run out to get gifts and cards for people on the way to an event
You feel it's not only your right, but your duty, to share whatever you feel like sharing, in any way you feel like sharing it, and at any time. Your bull-in-a-china-shop statements often leave people speechless or very upset.

When someone calls to tell you something upsetting, you respond with statements that either devalue their feelings or make them feel worse. Your best friend's engagement was just called off and you tell her she will save money on her wedding.
You know, about things like job loss, divorce, or being afraid of a health issue.
