Should you expect co-workers to buy you honey?

A co-worker asked if I need anything before he ran to the store. I said I needed honey and he told me he wasn't going to do my grocery shopping for me. I never said I wouldn't pay him back (but had every intention to). So, if he offered to grab something, wouldn't you expect him to?

  • He probably meant like a soda or candy bar or something like that.

  • No, I wouldn't expect a co-worker to get anything off my grocery list. He was probably referring to if you wanted anything to drink, eat, or any supplies that you needed for that day while you are at work. You can get honey on your way home from work. However, if I had of asked my co-worker that and they said they needed honey, then I probably would have gotten it for them, but I don't expect anyone to do anything for me, that I can do on my own.

  • I'm guessing that he thought you may want a soda or something - maybe he was just going to a convenient store?
