People Who Expect Others To Do Their Work For Free
My sister agreed to babysit this summer. That was okay with me, but when I went to ask my mom if I could go to my best friendâ€™s house, she butted in with, â€œno, because you have to babysit for me all this week while Iâ€™m at volleyball.â€ I wouldnâ€™t have minded this if I had already agreed to do it, but she just assumed I would do it. Now I canâ€™t see my best friend for a really long time. And my mom canâ€™t do math rightâ€”I said that I watched them for â…“ of the day, so I get â…“ of the money, but that wasnâ€™t good enough for her. So I calculated it and it turned out to be a little more than â…“, and now all she does is complain about how much money sheâ€™s losing. And she thinks sheâ€™s going to pay me way less. Again, I would not mind doing this if she had discussed itâ€”and pay ratesâ€”over with me first.
