Here’s the latest on the situation that had me pissed off earlier.
My friend and I were planning to get together this morning after she dropped her kids off at school and I told her that I could hang out with her for a couple of hours but that I had a follow up neurology appointment to go with for the little girl.
She asked me if the wife could just pick me up on the way so she doesn’t have to make two trips.
I didn’t think it was a big deal since she lives literally 5 minutes away so I asked the wife if she could come pick me up on the way to the appointment or (and here’s the out) is it not on the way?
She said that it’s not on the way and I said okay.
Then she said "You don’t have to go since it’s just a follow up, I’m used to doing all these things solo anyway."
I said "the reason you do a lot of those appointments solo is because it’s a pain to take both kids, something she says all the time.
She didn’t say anything and went back into her office, I don’t know if she just ignored the comment or didn’t hear me. I am sometimes a low talker anyway.
A little while later, she came out on her way to get another cup of coffee and said "when you asked me to pick you up, that really pissed me off. You know that I’ll have to deal with the little girls cranky ass and that I have to work and it just seemed selfish of you to ask me to do that."
I said "that wasn’t my intention".
So am I wrong and selfish for making such a request or no? if no, is she overreacting?
