I am not sure if anyone else has the same problem, but at the moment I am being a bit sick of being asked to constantly take other peoples kids to events. I really don’t mind helping out if some one is generally stuck but I feel with one friend she is constantly asking me regularly to pick her child up from school bring them home with me until the event and take them to the event which my child is doing then drop them home at the end of the event. Some times I just don’t want to have an extra person at home to feed before the sport. (It also means they dont get home work done)The last 4 weeks I have given them dinner and dropped them off and twice I had to go past my house to drop them home. So instead of being home at 730pm I dont get home till 8.15. After a full day my kids and I am exhausted! The favour has not yet been returned and you may well ask why do I do it and I am not sure except I like to help out. And I will do anything for a friend. But I am now feeling a bit used and how can I say I don’t want to take your child when I am going that way anyway??
