Is this normal? Asking for a friend…
No, not to shop. Everyone shops. It’s something that is probably done at least once per week, if not more. I get that.
But, what I am wondering is if it is normal for someone to go shopping and then ask if anyone in their family (not immediate, but extended) needs anything? Not just once, but every store you are running to for errands that day?
Three stops. Each one had the question posed to family. Different family members want us to pick up stuff for them at these three different locations?
Would this irritate you? It does me, obviously.
I am not out to shop for other people. I am not a service. I am not running it around to you and I am not going to store it for you until you have time to pick it up. I don’t care if you are family or not, I don’t wanna do it, especially if you are physically capable of doing it!
Small exception: While we were in lockdown and the older parents were afraid to go out in public, I made an exception here. I fully understood and supported this.
Not the case now.
Irritating AF. I guess that is my lot in life. First world problem, I know. But still. I’ll take care of my own crap and they can take care of their own…now if someone else in the house, er, I mean, that friend I was asking for could catch the drift…
