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 which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

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