“I don't know you well enough to force stuff on you."
"You mean, if you knew me better, you'd force stuff on me like everybody else?"
"It's possible," I said. "That's how people live in the real world: forcing stuff on each other."
"You wouldn't do that. I can tell. I'm an expert when it comes to forcing stuff and having stuff forced on you. You're just not that type. That's why I can relax with you. Do you have any idea how many people there are in the world who like to force stuff on people and have stuff forced on them? Tons! And then they make a big fuss, like, 'I forced her,' 'You forced me'! That's what they like. But I don't like it. I just do it 'cause I have to.”
