Aibu - drama club drama

First time poster, long time lurker
My DD goes to a drama club 3 nights a week, one of her school friend has joined the club, she started at just one night a week, so I offered to take the girl to the club as they live in the direction I’m going to drop my DD off, however the mother then put her girl in the other two nights which are at a different location (closer to where we live) and it seems I’m expected to take her all 3 nights even though I have to double back on myself, however I did do it for a few weeks but then I had something on one of the days, so couldn’t take DDs friend. Messaged the mother in plenty of time. But now it seems the mother has fallen out with me, hasn’t spoken to me other than when I messaged her the next day to see if I was to take her I only got a reply of “no”. Her girl hasn’t went to club for a week.
So I never messaged her this week as I don’t feel I should have to keep being the one to text. Also I don’t understand why she’s mad at me for having something to do when I never agreed to do all 3 nights.
So my question is AIBU to not message and not take DDs friend to club 3 nights a week. I don’t mind taking her when I’m able but hate feeling as if I’m obligated to do it every night.

She sounds like a CF why would she assume you'll ferry her DD around half the week. If she's annoyed at you it's because she thought she was getting a free taxi ride and she isn't. I wouldn't bother with her.

How very dare you not make time to take her daughter.
You must beg for that privilege to return to you.
You will not expect anything in return.
'''Tis an honour.

You’re not obligated to take her daughter anywhere that inconveniences you. I’d just leave it.

You sound like you’ve dodged a CF bullet. Well done and think no more of it.

I'm properly embroiled in a CF situation like this (lifts to training and matches), with added emotional blackmail and lies bigger than you wouldn't believe....advice: keep well away! Your cf will latch onto someone else sooner or later I can assure you. YANBU!

Oh good!! Thank you, I honestly wasn't sure if I was being horrible but I never agreed to the extra two days, so just wanted to make sure I wasn't in the wrong.

Yanbu at all. Some people don't know when they're on to a good thing.

Missus - I don't even know how it came about it was a convo that just went "so you'll get her at 5:30 thanks see you tomorrow" and I just kinda nodded thinking surely this is a one off or she'll do next weeks runs - that never happened
I'm just glad I'm not unreasonable
