My inlaws moved 20 miles away, but their house is up in the mountains, so it takes 35-40 minutes to drive there from our house. This weekend they are going away and have asked us to drive up to their house twice to feed their animals...chickens and a cat. They are friends with all of their neighbors, and they take care of their neighbors houses when they go out of town, why the fuck do they ask us to drive up there? It is a total waste of our time and gas to go there. Seriously... one of their neighbors could go there, take care of everything and be back home within 10 minutes, but we are expected to drive an hour and a half. it is ridiculous.
So now we either have to suck it up and do it, or be the bad guys that won't help them out.

Not sure how well they know or trust the neighbors. I know my mom has me come & check in on her house, & take care of her plants & her cats while they are on trips. She does so much for us, I don't mind doing it. It's about a 20 min. drive 1 way for me & I always stay & cuddle the pets so they aren't lonely. Besides, maybe they'll get you a nice souvenir for doing them the favor. :)
