After that brief interlude where I ranted abt the Progressive ad, let's go back to my social life.
P wants to move apartments. She is very very kicked about the SoHo apartment she's moving into. This Sunday, I, along with 4 other friends, will be helping her move. It's expected to be a cold weekend.
So I suggested to P that instead of us 6 people handling the move ourselves, we should hire movers. Movers will cost about 400$. I'd rather split that cost 6 ways than do the work. IMHO it's a better use of my time than carrying someone's futon.
When I suggested this to her, she was quite upset and said a) I did not have to come b) I was being insensitive.
First, I do want to help her move. It would be better if we did it my way but if we can't agree on it, I'll still go to help her move.
Second, I feel she's being insulting by not considering my comfort and caring only about her feelings relative to being offered money instead of elbow grease.
If she were have a wedding and I gifted her a shabby gift made with own two hands ( and elbow grease), she defnly care less about it than if I gave a 500$ gift card. How come elbow grease is accepted in one situation and not the other ?
Not cool only !!
