October 10th, 2016

Episode 465 of 489 episodes

Learn how to handle people who always want to tell you what to do in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:32 Explanations: 3:40 Fast dialog: 16:40 Rachel: What you need to do is… Logan: Stop bossing me around! I know what I’m doing so back off. Rachel: What’s gotten into you? I’m not bossing you around. I’m trying to help you. Some people are so ungrateful. Logan: It’s true that I’ve made my share of mistakes, but I don’t need you here to push me around calling all the shots. Rachel: Here’s a reality check: Without me keeping an eye on you and steering you away from bad decisions, you’d be back in trouble again. Logan: When I asked for your help, I’d forgotten how pushy and controlling you are. I’m not going to let you walk all over me like you did when we were kids. Rachel: Who is trying to walk all over you? If you think I’m being high-handed then I’m out of here. Logan: Good. I don’t know what possessed me to ask you for help in the first place. Rachel: Well, things never change, do they? Logan: Apparently not! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
