Today it gets back to me that some people don’t want to give me a ride due to my finances being so bad that I can’t afford to give them gas money. That’s okay, too. That’s their choice. Unfortunately, rather than tell me they would like some gas money they will give me a ride and then wait for me to offer it, but then get mad about it and murmur behind my back when I haven’t. Well, that’s just their issue. They’re not required to give me a ride when in need and they’re free to set whatever stipulations they want. I’m grateful for the ride and if I can’t afford to pay them what they want I’m fine with them not providing a ride. I understand the price of gas and stuff and don’t have a problem with them for their reasons. I’ll even get over them murmuring behind my back rather than coming to me with the issue. I got much more important things to worry about.
I do find it interesting that some of these same people who won’t provide a ride would look at me as if I’m crazy for riding my bike to work. I have to get to work and back home and I have no other way so what is there to be surprised about?
The bottom line is this is one of the reasons I hate to ask favors or help from people. I’d rather struggle along by myself than receive someone’s help and their drama to go along with it. Thanks, but no thanks.
