    • Thread Starter

    Having a little bit of a problem I struggle to get to work on a bus because its so far away from home , so my work colleague offered and said if u can get dropped off at my house in the morning and get picked up from my house when were on the way home u can have a lift , so shes not going out of her way what so ever , she has is now making me pay petrol every month and it frustrates me so much I can do it its just im struggling as I got my own family and im on an apprenticeship , I need advice am I being selfish because shes right or is she being the selfish one , also this woman is incredibly nosy and when im on the phone in the car she asks who.im texting , and if I have got.any gossip for her.also comments on the way I dress look I wang to go nuts but it helps because I need to work so I have to put up with it

    I don't understand what you're saying. She does or doesn't make you pay for petrol? Either way its her choice tbh. Of course it doesn't make a difference to her because she'll still be making a journey from her home to work. Personally I wouldn't charge someone for a lift, however its her car. Wouldn't say she's selfish maybe a bit greedy (?). If you took the bus you'd still be paying too so how is this any different.

    As for her being nosy, maybe get off your phone and make a conversation?

    If she's driving you to work then yes, you should pay her petrol. It's you who is wrong here. She's still helping you out so your family is irrelevant - you'd be paying for a bus so there's no difference to paying her, it's just easier for you to get a lift.

    Don't complain about her - it's ungrateful. Either you want the lift or you don't.
