An acquaintance that I hadn't seen or heard from for 5-6 years, who I only knew because we went to the same high school, asked me if my husband (they've never met) could give him a ride to the airport at 7a.m. in the middle of the week. Oh, and this was on facebook.

I told him to take the bus. Besides the obvious reasons for saying no, my husband works at 7a.m. so it was impossible from the beginning.

I understand that he had to ask because the person who was supposed to drive him backed out at the last minute, but what bothered me most was how he made a big dramatic facebook post about it later saying that he had no friends because no one would drive him to the airport. It turns out the other people he asked were also working and couldn't do it.

This is only first because the next favour I'm about to list has happened so many times that my irritation has been sanded down a bit:
My mother frequently invites my husband and I to her house for dinner. She lives in a different city nearby, so it's already inconvenient for us, but then my husband and I have to cook the dinner ourselves and I had to wipe down the table and find silverware. If it was going to be like that, it would have been easier on us for her to just come to our place.

I guess, anytime I'm asked by a coworker "to do them a favor" and it's something I would have to do anyway as part of my job. Maybe I'm nuts, but this super annoys me.

"Can you lend me some money?" That's about the only favour people ask me for.

Jesus Christ, fucking this right here. I don't actually begrudge them for asking, but turns out people that live by themselves for any amount of time end up having way too much shit to pack up and move and most of it ends up being crap they never needed or won't need where they are moving.

Of course I say this all despite the fact that I am moving myself soon and will have to ask this question of people. Doesn't stop it from being an annoying favour to ask though.

Can I borrow $$$$

I've made the mistake of loaning out thousands to friends.

I even had one or two pay be back.

I don't mind helping people move, as long as they buy pizza.

"Can you speak to my friend. I don't speak English good"

Wut?

Someone literally put a phone to my ear once and asked me to do this, among other examples.

My mother usually tries to blame for for the anything not working (including a light bulb exploding) because she doesn't know how to ask me to fix it nicely.
