It seems like every time i turn around someone is asking me for a ride! My aunt Carolyn, my cousin Tina, even my new naghbor called to see if i would take her son to school. My car is not painted yellow with TAXI wrote on the side!! I was not driving my car after i wrecked it because i was afread that driving it with one moter mount broke would cause more damage, so I was waiting to get it fixed. I asked my aunt carolyn for a ride to take my daughter to the doctors office (the one and only time i have EVER asked for a ride from them) and she said I could take the car to go.The next day when it was time to go to the doctor i go next door and find there car gone, her husband had taken the car, and she didn't even call me to let me know I needed to find another ride!! This really pissed me off because over the last couple of years i have taken then all over the place, and was even takeing there grandchild to school almost every day. I had to call the doctor and tell her (at the last minute) that i was not going to be able to come in because i had no ride. Her doctor has a rule, that if you don't show for a visit or give 24 hour ahead of time notice that you will not be there they do not rescedual an appointment for you, and yes i mean she drops you and you have to find another doctor. I begged her to let me continue to go there, and fumed for the rest of the day about what they did. I mean she could have at least called me to let me know, so I could find another ride!!
So anyways there car is once again broken and I am so convient living next door, when they need to go to the story or check the mail, or go to the doctor "just call christy she will give you a ride, give her 5 bucks for gas and she can't refuse" well 5 dollars will not even buy 2 gallons of gas, plus I don't realy feel like driving all the way to town when I don't have to go. I still have not got my car fixed, but i have no choice to drive it because i have to take my daughter to school every day, but that does not mean "hey i'm out lets run all your erends!! Today at 8 am my cousin calls me and TELLS me to go next door and borrow 5 dollars for gas (for her tank) and bring it to her so she can come over here because her and her bf had got in to a fight.
I told her no, and she got mad and hung up on me. I have repeatedly told them i don't need to be driving my car if i can avoid it, and they know i don't have money to buy gas, yet they just keep asking for rides.
How do i get them to understand i'm not there taxi or errend girl, with out hurting there feelings or pissing them off? I like Tina (my cousin) because we are the same age and I honestly have no "friends" to hang out with and talk to other than on here. BUT I hate that she takes advantage of me and our friendship.... what do you think I should do?? Am I being a bitch for not helping out ? Should I be there Taxi? I still want to be friends and hang out, but i want her to understand that I don't want her calling me every time she needs something. I have told her this point blank and yet she has called me for a ride 3 times this week alone, well with in the last 7 days.
any advice would be nice, so this was so long, i was kinda frustrated, I feel a little better getting it off my chest.
