Courtesy Would Land You in Someone’s Troublesome Water.

I was so confused,
I didn’t know for sure
that specific issue
I was desperately in need of a plain clarification
it was purely the reason
I had asked you that damned question

I wanna be honest with you
I didn’t feel at ease, at all
with your polite
“oh no.
so sorry for it
let me check on that.
I’ll find out and let you know.”

While I appreciate your good intention in social courtesy
I still don’t get your point
why would you waste our time
around the bush?

You clearly didn’t have the answer
why not just say:
“sorry. I don’t know”
it was as simple as that.

I have to admit
I had already had a rough time
when I did not get what I had expected
your polite reply was acting like more gasoline added to my intensive fire
apparently, you didn’t have any luck
you stood on my way
and got my bad day

So you know
courtesy sometimes doesn’t help
you’d better stay
when someone is in his own hell.
it’s none of your business
don’t turn someone else’s problem into yours.
