Although my entire family claims "Catholic" as their religion, there are less than 1/2 a dozen who actually go to Mass. Here lately I have been considered the family sacramental official. When the owner of a rosary, medal, statue ect would like for their religious artifact to be blessed they can't be bothered by going to Mass and asking for it to blessed. We live in the same state but I live at least 40 minutes away in a different city. It takes longer to drop their stuff on than it would take to just go to Mass.
I understand many of you do not believe in sacramentals, that is not what I am asking.
If I am asked to get an object blessed I will do it but I won't go out of my way to pick the item up or drop it off. Would I be totally out of line if I said, "why don't we to Mass together at this time and after Mass we can ask for it to be blessed?"

It's not out of line at all, they are taking advantage of you.
