Have namechanged.
I was meeting a friend today at a shopping centre - she got dropped off by her husband I got the bus.

But there was a strike on today and so my bus didn't come, so I had to walk to anothe bus stop get a different bus to another bus stop where I got on another bus to the shopping centre (I didn't have my mobile so could not cancel)

I had no kids today she brought her toddler and baby. She has a single buggy so I spend the whole day wearing her DS in a carrier so she could push the buggy easier, I didn't mind really though I od have a bit of a crap back.

Anyway she wanted to go to a shop she'd seen at another centre, so we get on the bus, walk all over trying to find it, I was ready to give up, but she really wanted to so we walked all the way back once we got directions (with me still carrying here DS!)

And when we found it it was shut down.

So we go back to the main town centre,

I tell her I'll have to get going as I have to get the 2 buses as the bus I get is on strike (she'd known this all day'

Shes says OK and calls her DH to come and get her in the car.

Now AIBU to have hoped she would have offered me a lift considering that it is a 10 minute car drive for her DH, but an impossible walk (in the rain too!!) and I had to get 2 buses home??

Maybe 'pee'd off' is the wrong phrase, maybe more hurt?

As I would have always offered her a lift?

There was probably no room for you in the car with the two car seats.

YANBU BUT - would you have fitted into car easily with 2 car seats?

She sits in between the 2 anyway, she always does every time shes visited shes been in the back with the kids.

In your situation, I would have pushed the buggy, not lugging her DS around in a carrier! That's mad (and taking the piss).

But, I think YABU to have assumed a lift. It was thoughtless off her sure, but I bet if you'd just asked for a lift, she/her husband would have said yes.

Why have you not asked whether you could get a lift?

I would have asked for a lift grin

Why didn't you just ask!!!

I'd never have expected someone to carry my little one around all day. I either bring the double buggy or one buggy and carry DD in the sling.

And, yes, you should have been offered a ride home unless there weren't enough seats.

Yes i would be hurt but i would have asked for a lift. sometimes you just have to come right out and ask, the worse she could say was no then you know what sort of a friend she is so would not meet her again unless there was a valid reason.

I would never ask for a lift, its just not in my nature blush

yanbu. they were rude and thoughtless and rubbish.

pigletmania Mon 28-Sep-09 18:54:28

Dino i expect you have heard of tghe phrase if you dont ask you dont get. If she is a good friend she should have offered, anyway i presume she ASKED you to carry her child in a sling and wanted to drag you round the shops for her purpose, what sort of a friend is she.

pigletmania Mon 28-Sep-09 18:55:45

She was quite cheeky imo asking you to carry round her child in a sling despite your back problem, then dragging you round the shops for her things, the least she could have done was offered a lift.
