Favors. We’ve all had to request them, and we’ve all had to grant them at some point or another during our lives. I don’t care who you are or how astute and fortunate you may be, it’s just a cold, hard fact of life. From time to time, we all fall upon hard times and require the assistance of our fellow brahs. Sometimes, it may be as simple as requesting permission from your brah to take his last beer because you’re just too damn lazy to run up to the corner store and get another case. Other times, it’s undoubtedly some type of debilitating setback or crisis that requires an immediate bailout, such as when your girl suddenly and without warning shows up to surprise you at work with an A-1 Thick & Hearty Burger, and your brah has to cover for you because he knows damn well that you just took off to lunch with the new, smoking-hot marketing intern who has been making eye-babies with you ever since her first day in the office.
But, it never seems to fail that you happen to run across that one brah who hasn’t been initiated and has absolutely no clue how the honor code or fraternal system of favors really works. So, for the sake of us all, I’m here to break it down. And, if you can grasp this simple concept, you’ll make your life and the lives of all your brahs infinitely more enjoyable.
As a brah, you shall always exhaust any and every alternative that may be available to you before requesting a favor from another brah. And, should another brah ever request a favor from you, you shall always grant his request without hesitation whenever practical, possible, and within your means. After all, common courtesy and the brah code naturally go hand in hand. So, the next time that you need a favor or a favor is requested of you…you got this brah!
