Who's the selfish one now

 My friend is due to get released from the hospital tomorrow and before they release him, they wanna make sure he has someone who can clean and re bandage his wound three times a day. 6am 2pm and 10pm. He texted me this morning and asked me if I could do it. This man knows I have to work and I have finals to study for. He also knows I have a 1 year old kid. He's gonna be staying with his mom and sis while he heals and I understand they don't like to look at stuff like that but I think its wrong of him to expect me to be there 3 times a day when I have a life. Now I'm really convinced that he is setting me up to look like a bad friend. I don't wanna do it!

Am I being selfish?

Asking you to do something is setting you up? You need to tell him you don't want to be his friend. I can't imagine thinking something bad about a person constantly and yet calling them.my friend.

I don't think you are! Maybe you can get a schudle with his mom and sis, since they don't like to look at it. You go over 1 time and they each split the other times. Then maybe you wouldn't feel so bad, even though I totally see where you are comming from.

Aren't you the one who didn't visit him and ask us if you were being selfish then?

Seriously, if you can't make time to see a friend in the hospital then yes you're selfish. It's beyond me why he would ask you for help since you could bother to go see him.

What type of injury does he have that he can't do it himself? Why does he want you to do it?

Weird.

I think it's completely fine to say, I'm s sorry, but I have work and school on my plate and I would hate to let you down.

 He likes to play victim.
