  • i am no good at things like this. But in my limited experience you DON"t say a thing to her that never really works in your favor and will only make things worse for you. Just stop asking her to do things if she feels that way about it. and in turn if she asks you then you don't either. Find someone else to babysit your child. you make have to pay for daycare.

  • Maybe you should try calling her just to ask her how she is doing. Maybe you should go and visit her just because. Maybe the thingsyou do for her are little in comparison to what she does for you and she is feeling used. Buy her a gift (or make her one), maybe a card telling her that she means the world to you and that you don't know how you could make it in this world without her. Let her know how much she means to you. Good luck.

  • maybe she was just having a bad day, don't take it too personal. Just call her and ask her if she's ok.

  • Maybe you should tell her what you just posted here... simply tell her that the two of you talk all the time and if she was feeling this way why hadn't she said something before now... also remind her that you both have and still do each other favors including watching/picking up from/ etc kids...
    As a pp said, she could have been having a bad day and did not realize that she was that rude... ask her... if the two of you are close enough she will tell you ....

    Good Luck with your interview
