Deano’s answer to: “How do you remind people that you did something very nice for them?”

You do another nice thing for them, as a ‘thank you’ for them letting you do the first nice thing…

If that doesn’t make them your guilt-ridden love slave (or at least prompt a sheepish thank you), then stop doing nice things for them, delete their email contact info, and burn their phone number; they are a lost cause.
