Don't Try to Teach a Pig to Sing

Robert Heinlein said, "Never try to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and it annoys the pig."
I really wish people wouldn't get mad at people for being themselves.  It doesn't change the person, but it upsets the angry one.  Larry thinks I should help him do things.  I'm willing.  But.  I'm not willing to pay attention and try to guess what he wants me to do.  I'm not willing to pay attention to hand signals.  I'm not willing to even think about most of it.  I'll hold it or help move it, but this pig not only can't sing, but doesn't want to.
