I help when asked or I see someone struggling. If they demand that I don't help, however, I'll just stand back and watch them fail...

So what about you?


Oh. THAT'S what a 'tool' is? I always thought the word, when used in that sense, meant to compare someone to an unsightly or otherwise displeasing penis.

Well, going by your definition, I'd have to say that I certainly have tool-y moments, but I definitely do not put myself out of my comfort zone unless I have something to gain by doing a 'favor'.

That isn't selfish, mind you - it's friendship >.<

Am i a tool as how u put it . u say ur a tool if u help .well in truth a tool is way different as how u describe it.but either way i never considered myself a tool cus no one is controlling me to do it and i wasnt made to purely to function on it.

I like helping people out of Kindness in general, people that i dont know and do know. There is no better feeling that comes of it its really lifts and brightness the spirit . U feel a sense of happiness in seeing that person that u helped feel better and knowing that at least u made a difference in that life. Well there is no greater satisfaction for me in seeing someone smile a pleasant smile and it makes it even more meaningful to me that i did it out of my own will and sacrificed what i had to do that might have been important, but there troubles might have been even more important than mine. so yeah if this as u clearly put it makes someone a Tool then i guess i am one Happy one.

What i think of these types of people well i clearly see that if they ask for help i will surely give it to them but if they reject it and say they can do it i will step back. but i will always be there behind them to hold them up when they need me . i guess that how i am haha.

i dont mind in helping but i also dont want them to depend on me too much .i want to help them get back up but not keep holding there hand in walking them forever. They have to know where the boundary lies in doing things ur self.

For me it has value.
I do tbings mainly because I want to...
So when people say ur being used...
I say actually I'm letting myself get used and there is a big differemce in awareness there.
Its more about just wanting to do something or be a part of something for a bit...
Usually it just means ur the guy people come to get somethung done but when the problem is solved then u have to leave because ur a reminder of the careless neglugence of the people who should have helped in the first place...
Some people think its cool but really it has nothin to do with image, intentions, or integrity but people will label it as good...
I think its completely selfish what i do...

um...ok so this post is getting close to 4 years old, but I have to say that I think this definition of 'tool' is way off the mark.

Every time I've heard it used, it implies a person who is somewhat clueless and who allows himself to be used easily by other people, and who is by extension readily tossed aside. The extended meaning is of a sort of clueless person in general who might not fall under the category of 'dork.'

With the definition given in the OP, Mother Theresa, Albert Schweitzer, the Peace Corps, and the Red Cross are all a bunch of tools.

Wow, this old -unknown-and-very-unsuccessful- thread somehow got revived even though it's past it's due date. I'm.so surprised I feel the need to re-zombify this corpse.



A tool can be whatever you're imagination wishes it to be within any given context. Having said that, it can be for whatever reason you wish it to be, it still sadly doesn't change the title.



Indeed, it's good to know the difference between teaching someone by example and serving another person.



If it's for your own pure interests to be helpful to other people, then man you must be a really kind person.


It may be off center, but I do believe that the term can be used in a broad enough sense to allow my definition to technically be correct with the definition I tied to it so many asdasfasdasf years ago.

And if you applied my given definition of a "tool" to those different groups, yeah they most definitely are. There's no real way you can sugar coat that effectively.

Some people call it kind or nice....I don't see it that way...
Do things for yourself. Don't be like me. I do what I do because It keeps me going...
We will give 100 percent knowing it will fail so we can walk away guilt free..I've been hurt so many times...it makes u stronger...
But it scares people when they see ur true colors and what ur capable of...how far u will go...and how different you are...
Its keeping a promise to myself to stop history from repeating by any means nessasary...no one should go through the loneliness and horrible things I've been through by themself...not like me.
Ill save u some time and expericance so keep this in mind...

The worst thing in the world is to watch people u care about give up...
To go back to their old habits...
Because then you know...everything u did and sacrificed...was for nothing...
Walk away...do what I can't and walk away...

Depends on my mood.

Constantly helping people is what some live for. I admire how they can do such things so continuously and still feel good about themselves.
However, I've been doing this a lot lately. Although I realize most are caught up in their own world, it definitely heightens my feelings of being under-appreciated.

I take slight offense to the term "tool."

I like to think Im genuinely nice person, or at least have a strong work ethic. Ill do things other people dont want to do, doesnt necessarily mean I WANT to do it, but I do it anyways. And one way or another it's recognized. If somebody asks me to do something, and I dont have my plate full, Ill do it. I firmly believe that if you do good things for others, it will come back to you. Karma can be a bitch, but it can be rewarding.

I like how people scoff and complain about greed and laziness, but they dont look at themselves when they try to make a point. You have to be change, you wish to see tomorrow (Or so Ghandi would say) I try to creative a positive place for people to be around- but the same time, Im sure as hell not going to let people take advantage of me. Because of personal experience, Im able to know the difference between somebody who genuinely needs help and somebody who just wants to take advantage.

Just because Im nice, and compassionate, doesnt mean Im a pushover.
