So I'm asking for you help. I might not like what I hear, but I want your opinion.
I'm going to tell you a little story.
In Dick and Jane style.
Someone let me borrow a breastpump.
She offered, I didn't ask.
She moved away.
To a different country.
She didn't take breastpump with her.
She came back to visit.
Asked me to meet up with her.
She never called.
She came back to visit, again.
Asked me to meet up with her, again.
She never called.
She came back to visit.Asked me to meet up with her, again.I was going off island.I left breastpump at mutual friend's home.She never picked it up.She asked me to send it to her.It cost a buttload to send.Told her I would keep it here until she came to visit again.Emails started to get ugly.Jamie started to get pissed.She is blaming.Is this my responsibility?The End.But not really. Read the latest e-mail she sent to me. Names have been changed to protect...I'm not going to say innocent, they are just changed._______________________________________________________________________________Hi,
To say the least, I am rather miffed with this entire breast-pump-
return fiasco. Quite frankly, regardless of the fact that we never
seemed to "meet" whilst I was in Hawaii, I am going to point out that
in my opinion, YOU should have been coming to me, not vice versa.
After all, I was doing you the favor, NOT you doing me a favor.
So, when Dick (named changed) arrives in Hawaii next month I expect you to drive out
to where ever he is staying and return the pump to him in immaculate
condition. I hardly got to use my pump, so I would appreciate it's
condition being near new.
Jane (Named changed)
Am I wrong for being pissed and feeling like it's not my responsibility to get this thing to her? Now I'm even more pissed (after this last e-mail) and want to write her and tell her off. It's as if I am keeping this damn breastpump away from her. What the hell? Really? Over a freakin' breastpump. I'm not going to pay to ship it to her (though I should have to get her off my back), but that was the whole point of borrowing (might I remind it was she who offered!) I am a cheap son-of-a-gun. I borrow so I don't have to pay for something. And when I let people borrow things I don't expect them to be at my beck-and-call with whatever item it is.
So please tell me exactly what you think. I need a sanity check here.
Oh, by-the-way I've had the breast pump since Lucy was born.....almost 5 years ago.
