Saying "Yes" and/or Giving 100%

I have come to appreciate the people with bumper stickers that say, "Yes, this is my truck.  NO, I will not help you move."  They are good, honest people. 

Maybe I'm getting old and cranky, or maybe I just see things more clearly at my present age, but I can't help but be annoyed by the people who say, "Yes*" but mean "No."  IF you say "Yes*" to something, then do that something with freaking joy and happiness.  It does no one any good if you agree to help but act like an ass. 

Here is a list of things that might make you say "Yes*" when you actually mean "No."  This is a self-help tool of sorts.  If you read it carefully, make up your mind now whether you'd say "Yes*" or "No" then you can spare the rest of the world from your bad attitude:
