Can you do me a favor........

Do you have someone in your life that ONLY contacts you when they need a favor or need information? My mom is like this. She makes me so mad! She one of these people who you give an inch,and they take a mile. It took me quite awhile,but I've finally learned the word NO! I say treat me like I deserve to be treated,or don't bother calling. FYI,she has never done us favors ever.She sat for my son once when I had to go to the dentist,but other than that,nothing. Not that I expect her to,but it'd be nice for some reciprical action once in awhile.

  • I think we share a mom too, OP.

    Other than the fact that every time my mom calls/writes, anything, she expects something bigger in return. She never just calls to say hi, or writes just to write. In the 5 years I have lived away from home, she has only stepped foot in my house TWICE.

  • Maybe we have the same mom. Mine can not call me for weeks and then suddenly call because she needs food/money/babysitter. It sucks. I'm about to cut my mom off too. It sucks but it's a two way street, right?
