    Awkward repercussions, I suppose.

    The last time I asked for something was a salted, dried prune in the 4th grade. I regret having done it but at the time, it looked delicious. I just don't like being in the position of owing someone.

    such an sj response: I didn't like what I asked for, therefore anything i ask for must be bad. Also asking doesn't mean you owe anyone anything, you're asking permission to take. owing someone is when you borrow or get a gift. because you did not ask politely to take something. so basically asking for something is polite stealing

    I think it has a lot to do with early conditioning. Some people feel undeserving of help, some distrustful of others, some fear dependence or the appearance of dependence. In some it's so ingrained in their character that they'll be denied or ignored they won't even bother asking--sort of like the circus elephant analogy (keeping the same chain on an elephant as it matures, where once it's strong enough to wander away it's resigned itself to slavery... the chain representing some sort of neglect). I'm sure there are other more circumstantial reasons, though.

    I enjoyed the prune, but it was a moment of weakness on my part. I should have bought some myself instead of mooching off my classmate.

    To me, it's owing.

    Not sure. I've always thought that if someone does you a favor, that you owe them.
