I am a nice person. I did a nice thing because I am nice. And because I am generous. And because there are things in life more important than money.
However now I have been asked to sign a form to say basically that should I ever become a bitch I cannot change my mind on the nice thing.
I do not want to sign this. It makes me feel like my niceness is untrustworthy. And if I am still untrustworthy with the niceness on my side, what is the point in being nice in the first place.
Being asked to sign a legally bounding niceness document goes against the spirit of niceness that the offer was made in. It tarnishes it. It makes it not worth the niceness it was written on.
Apparently the niceness makes the other party feel like I could change my mind about being nice in the future. Well. Now it has been put to me like that it occurs to me that the recipient of the niceness could also undergo a change of personality and become unworthy of the niceness.
See. This is what happens when law gets involved with niceness and trust. It makes everybody seem untrustworthy, and makes people who had faith in each others fundamental niceness suddenly imagine a time when the other morphs into a being of the underworld.
I preferred it when it was just nice, and a persons word was enough.
