now my thoughts will be worth 5 cents
- May 28, 2009
We didn’t ask him to drive, he volunteered in the first place. We had other transportation sorted out.It’s a little weird to me too but maybe he’s short of cash? Maybe he has to go way out of his way? Maybe it takes a lot of extra time.
All I know is if I needed help, I wouldn’t complain about the help I got, even if it came with a cost.
Yes, he still needs a ride to and from work but he’s been able to take the dog for walks without a walker now.I suppose. Again I've luckily never been in a spot so tight that I literally wouldn't have been able to afford to help. And factoring in compensation for the time? I'd feel that's wrong no matter what the situation. As to the bolded, my heart goes out to anybody who has very few people to rely on - that must be hard.
(Not sure if you followed the thread that ran for 6 months, but the DH in this scenario suffered an prolonged, life-threatening illness. My guess is his need for a ride at all is in the aftermath of that.)
WTH does that mean? No one sent you an invitation to read it. If you didn’t like it, you could have moved on.Oh, I’m aware.
