Like everything else aboutrepparttar PLORK philosophy, have fun with these!

1. "I'm sorry. Thatís not a priority for me right now."

2. "I can't help you on this now, but I can get to it next week. Would that be okay?"

3. "I have so much on my plate now I don't know when I can get to it. But I do know someone over here who can help you now."

4. "Before I take this on for you, let me show you a few things so that you might be able to do it yourself."

5. "I have made so many commitments to others, it would be unfair to them and you if I took on anything more at this point."

6. "If I can't give you a ride torepparttar 102006 school dance on Friday, how else would you get there safely?"

7. "I don't know how soon I can help you on this, but I will get back to you as soon as I am free to help you."

8. "I'm sure we're close enough that when I say "no" you'll understand itís for a good reason."

9. "Sure I can help you with your request as long as we both agree and understand thatrepparttar 102007 item I agreed to do for you yesterday is going to have to wait."

10. "Before I take this over from you, what do you think we ought to do about it?"

11. "I've got good news and bad news. The good news is, I can do that for you. The bad news is, I'm so overloaded with everything else, I've become delirious and have been lying about my commitments."

12. "When I get overwhelmed like I am now, I remove every third person who asks me for something, from my "Good Friends List" andrepparttar 102008 second person just left."

13. "No."

14. "Thanks for thinking to ask me, but, no thanks."

15. "I would like to help you out on this but I don't have repparttar 102009 resources available to dorepparttar 102010 right job for you."

16. "Now thatísrepparttar 102011 type of thing I would love to help you on if only I hadrepparttar 102012 time."

17. "Just like you, I get overloaded sometimes and have to tell some very special people, "no". This is one of those times."

Okay, so now you know what happens when we don't care for our brushes. So how do we clean them?

To clean your brushes, run them under tepid water. (Always holdrepparttar brush underrepparttar 102005 water withrepparttar 102006 handle pointing up so as not to damagerepparttar 102007 brush.) Add a small amount of mild shampoo to your index finger then emulsify (by rubbing your index finger and thumb together). Gently squeezerepparttar 102008 shampoo into your brush. Rinse your fingers and brush. When thoroughly rinsed, gently wring outrepparttar 102009 remaining moisture fromrepparttar 102010 brush while formingrepparttar 102011 bristles and set on a towel to dry.

With these simple steps, you could be another of Armando's customers whose brushes last them over twenty years! Just think ofrepparttar 102012 money you will save!
