Default Hello, did you forget my input was required here?

I'm not anti-social. I'm not ungrateful. But I value my individual agency and I do get so tired of people who decide what they will do for me, often to my face, without considering how I might feel about it.

Case 1: I was at the local Cumberalnd Farms buying my coffee. I sometimes spend the night there (not sleeping) when I have a closepen shift and I read, or work on a short story, or whatever and it's me time. Because it's down the street from where I work a lot of co-workers stop there for their coffee and what have you.

When I'm outside of the workplace, with the exception of two co-workers I consider friends, and the ones I'm related to by blood or by marriage, I am radioactive. It means leave me alone, give me my space, pretend I'm invisible.

I was in line behind a department manager who is actually quite annoying but isn't the manager of my department. He was waiting to pay for his cigarettes and lottery tickets and I was waiting to pay for my coffee. He says, "You just have a coffee? I'll get that for you."

I didn't say anything because I wasn't about to get into an argument and make the night clerk uncomfortable. So when he goes to pay for his things and tells the clerk "I'm paying for his coffee," I hold up my debit card and say, "Nope."

Plain and simple. The night clerk doesn't care either way but he rings up the DM and then rings me up. And the DM just looks at me like, How dare I reject his offer. But oh well, that's just too damn bad that I have a mind of my own and I don't appreciate people telling me what they'll do instead of asking.
