Is your life philosophy "the squeaky wheel gets the grease?"

Or do you just kind of let things happen as they will?

  • For the most part I just let things go. But, if it has to do with my kids I'm pretty squeaky. (c:

  • I will speak up when I feel it is appropriate. Things that I cannot control I will let them happen as they will. I can never be one or the other.
    P.S. why is this in the Home & Garden section? lol

  • I sway between that and "the nail that sticks up gets pounded down". There are situations where squeaking makes sense and others where it's clearly not called for. I try to match the action to the character of the situation.

  • In some occasions I think "the squeaky wheel gets the grease" is the way to go. However, in most of the situations in my life I just let them go, and see what happens.

  • I think if you want something badly enough, you become the squeaky wheel.

  • Neither. I don't whine or complain, but I don't just sit back and let things happen either. There are better ways of getting what you want.

  • I try to be proactive and preventative, but sometimes you can't fix something until you know it's broken.
