Assumption

This is our Daily Post Prompt today

You know what they say :
To assume can also lose you as a friend.
Believe me, I know.
We lost count of the number of times our ‘friends’ would assume it would be OK for us to:

Walk their dog
Babysit
Take them shopping
Take them to the doctor
Take them out
Look after their dog/pets
Taxi their friends around
Empty bins

We found this brilliant word.
Suddenly we had no friends.
But our time was ours again and we soon made new ones.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    There’s one thing to be needed but another to be used. You are much better off without those “friends”. πŸ™‚
