  1. Oh Kevin, I think you’re missing one of the most important aspects of the wall calendar, which when someone asks you to do something you can say “Oh, I need to go home and check my calendar and then I’ll get back to you.” It’s a great way to never be pressured into doing anything on the spot. My family uses a wall calendar to coordinate our movements (I live with my parents who are both self-employed). I’ve seen my mom tell people she can’t do a thing until she checks the calendar while on the phone standing in front of the calendar. I usually say I’m going to “check the calendar” because it sounds a lot better than saying “I need to ask my parents if it’s okay because even though I’m in my thirties I have a medical condition that means I live at home and don’t own a vehicle”. Anything that I would need to agree to immediately or lose the opportunity is probably too short notice to even be feasible anyway, given said medical condition and the difficulty I have traveling.
