coffee with a friend.

So a friend of mine who I love dearly, was bored last night and called to ask me to go for coffee. The kids and my parents were getting ready to go for a swim. So I suggested we go pick up coffee come here and go for a swim, so my mom agreed to watch my 17 month old so I didn't have to use her seat and take it in and out of the van to hers.


So anyways we go through drive thru at Tim Hortons, I order my order plus my parents and my 3 kids, and then she orders hers. Well.apparently her invitation to coffee was me paying for it. Lol I was just kinda put off by it.

I mean, OK when she drives me places I pay her 20 in gas her coffee and usually lunch. But that is her driving me around all day 5-6 hours etc......
Sometimes she says don't worry about gas, I have a full tank and says save it till I need it. Kwim?
When I call her for coffee I do pay when she says she has no money, so I say oh well its on me. . But I think its weird to invite someone for coffee and expect them to pay. Is it just me or?

Lol I really don't care its only a few dollars. Just thought it was really weird. Lol

I would think that she would have at least payed for her own, especially since you were providing her with some free fun at your pool :)

I have a friend like that, however, she conveniently forgets to reciprocate. Now I just say I don't have money for extra

Yes this. Lol she wanted to go sit in her car and have coffee and smoke. I never ask my parents to watch my kids that much and they wanted to swim it was almost dark out so I suggested bringing coffee back to my parents to swim.
