Don’t know why the word NO is so hard to say but it is. And I feel like a big, worthless doormat that’s just going into the trash eventually.
One colleague if he needs me to take over something while he’s on break or needs to be out of the area for some other reason, fine. But this person makes a pattern of duty shirking, passing the buck onto others.
Don’t know why I expected differently, but have some issues right now with building access until my access card is replaced. I asked could he walk outside with me while I briefly looked for my phone in the car—not cause I feel unsafe by myself, but, as I explained, am having access issues. The whole trip would have probably cost 5 minutes.
He came up with excuses and “Why not just buzz Security?” They had already expressed irritation.
I ended up doing it myself & buzzing irritated Security.
My teen I am asking not to run a mile, or make Straight A’s, but to clean her room, clean up after herself, help change her bed sheets. Always there is some excuse why she can’t be bothered with me & “will do it myself”. Never gets done.
Feel as if I’m living somewhere I’m considered an undesirable and really not wanted. Much as I love this house, sometimes I wonder if I should rent somewhere by myself and adopt some cats. They don’t ask for much of anything and give much more.
Fed up with asking for one little thing to be seen as high maintenance and expecting too much. A brief walk? Help house cleaning? Really?
I know I’m done doing favors and I’m sure not getting my daughter a dog likes she wants. Guess who would do all the work with the dog?
Am I a bad person for feeling this way? Would renting by myself free all of the person they don’t want around anyway?
