    Hello TSR,
    So today, I come in at 5 from Sixth Form after leaving at 6.30, then get asked if I could go trick or treating with my step bro and mum because she is afraid of the dark(48 years old)...
    Its not really my thing and I have a ton of work to do. I said no sorry I have homework and coursework due in tomorrow and just do not have the time. Next thing I know, I'm getting moaned at for about 20 minutes saying how selfish and lazy I am.
    Was I wrong to say no ?
    What would you have done ?
    Thank you,
    Lee

    *It's not like I don't do anything around the house (hoover,dishwasher, dog walk X3 each day). We live in a very safe area, so I know they will be fine. I'm 17 so hardly anyone my age goes trick or treating anyway right ? Its not that important, just want to get someone else's opinion.

    well I do think you could have found 30-45 mins to wander round with a little kid to help your family out, it's not a huge ask

    however if you said you had lots of homework/coursework your family should respect that your schoolwork needs to come first, if it was that important they should have asked you in advance

    You're not stubborn ar lazy. You just didn't feel like going trick-or-treating. I don't do trick-or-treating because I respect the elderly people.

    No, but your mum is selfish and probably lazy for not taking her child trick or treating because she's "scared of the dark".
