I have a friend who I have known for many years. She is always asking for “small favours”...it might not seem like a big deal, but over the years it has started to grate on my nerves. It all started with her asking me to buy concert tickets for her online because she didn’t trust using her credit card online, and she would pay me back. I thought it was odd (and a little annoying that she was willing to risk MY credit card), but I obliged. Over the next few years, she would ask me for these little favours. Use my membership at stores because she didn’t want to pay for membership for example. Whenever going out I would have to pick her up and drop her off (even though she has a car and has been driving for at least 15 years). She doesn’t live next door either...she lives 20 minutes from me. Her excuse is she hates driving. Recently she asked me if I wanted to try a new restaurant in a town about 40 minutes away. I said “sure”, and she right away said “ok we will take your car”. We never went because I didn’t proceed to make the plans. I was annoyed. She never offers to pay for gas.
Also recently, she asked me if I would drive her and her mom to a city TWO HOURS away because they wanted to check out a new store. She offered to pay me HALF the gas. So I was supposed to waste an entire Saturday chauffeuring them to another city, putting more than 400km of mileage on my new car, and she would pay me HALF the gas? Needless to say, I said no. (Don’t forget...she HAS a car).
We also recently visited a friend who has been very sick. We decided to buy the friend a few groceries. So I picked her up (of course I was driving!) and drove to the grocery store. We put a bunch of stuff in the cart. I was ok with anything put in the cart because for me it was for our sick friend. So the whole bill went on my credit card and she gave me half (in cash). The problem? Some of the stuff she put in the cart was actually for her and not the sick friend. So I had the privelege of paying half of her stuff too. WTF?
So is this girl just clueless...or is she a very clever user?
So, in a nutshell, my health has suddenly and quickly taken a turn for the worse. It started with just a pain in my abdomen, I didn't even think much of it. Fast forward one month to many doctor visits and tests done later... I am looking at surgery... one for sure, possibly two more! They found MORE things wrong while doing these other tests. I always go to the doctor regularly too, so this is...
