A little context before the story:
- Girlfriend and I live together
- I work a normal 9-5, she works a graveyard shift.
So, we made plans to try and go out to dinner Tuesday evening as it has been a long time since we last had a proper date.
Tuesday comes and my girlfriend remembers she has to take her car in for annual inspection.
Here comes the issue:
Girlfriend still relies on myself and her family for important things like for example the vehicle inspection, going to the doctor etc
She then proceeds to tell me she has to drive to her parents so they can drop her car off at the inspection site and since her parents will be driving the car to the inspection for her, she will be stuck there all day and so she wants me to go and pick her up for dinner.
My problem with this is that the drive to her parent’s place is 30 minutes. Coming back home to go out to dinner will be another 30, followed by the ride back to her parent’s to pick up her car after the inspection is done will be another 30.
Therefore, I tell her she should get the inspection done herself and that I’m not going to pick her up.
And here goes the “Why can’t you just pick me up?” followed by a “K” reply when I explained my point to her.
Am I being unreasonable here or is she the one that is being unreasonable and wasting my time?
