Their friend came over and they was talking to her in the car then her battery went flat. So they said they will jump start her but then they came up to ask me to help and I didn't want to because that woman like their friend hasn't done anything for me so why should help her and she probably not going do me any favours. Im not trying to sound arrogant. I just don’t don't like this women because I kind of had some issues with her and she doesn't like me. Once I was eating my breakfast in the kitchen but I felt really uncomfortable and really awkward because that woman with just sat next to me not saying anything giving me dirty looks. I prank called her when I was younger as well.

If it was a totally different famliy friend they asked me help i probably would have done it without a doubt. I help my parents for everything else, if they ask me to do something I do it every time apart from helping this woman out because I just don't see how I should help her. I just told them no and we fell out over it basically because we argued a bit.

So you prank called her, she gave you “dirty looks” over breakfast and so you refuse to help start her car...
I can see why they fell out with you.

Regardless of how someone treats you, you should always help them. Good actions always find their way back to you 😊

Why though?
I know it might have been good for my parents but I help them out with other stuff. I was busy as well. If it was someone else I would have helped

Regardless of whether you like her or not, helping someone is basic decency.

So the past is irrelevant but you’re going to hold a grudge for her giving you supposed dirty looks over the breakfast table?
Grow up and have some basic human decency.

I think that you were right to choose not to get involved in assisting someone that you dislike and have a history of negative involvement with.
That said, your past prank calling was immature and obnoxious behaviour.

But it is okay to calmly and politely let your parents know when you are not willing to directly interact with specific individuals or help them in any way. As long as you were not confrontational or vicious in your communications with either your parents or their friend.
Your parents will know that you are unlikely to change your decision, they can't force you to do so and are not likely to remain angry or focused on the issue for a very long time.

Wouldn't it better if you helped her, and get it over and done with, than having to go through the stroppy child phase and having your parents mad at you? 🤷

We all have to do things that we don't like, it's part of life that we have to deal with

i just don't think it's that big of a deal. i know you said you don't like each other but has anything major ever gone down between you both before that would give you reason not to associate with each other? you could have just helped her that once and then told your parents not to ask for help associated with her in the future if she bugs you that much. i know you're not entitled to helping someone you don't like but i can kind of see why your parents minded, and helping her doesn't mean you like her anyways, it just means you're decent enough to ignore the hatred between you both and be helpful.
