Ok, so one of my closest friends has recently become a moocher! I'm not sure if "moocher" is the word I'm looking for.
She is constantly asking for favors from me because I'm a teacher and am not working in the summer, so she naturally assumes I'd be happy to go pick her prescriptions while she's at work, stay at her house while someone fixes the washing machine, etc... Even this morning she called to ask if I'd drive her to work b/c it's raining and she doesn't like driving in the rain! (Since it was so early in the morning, I didn't answer because I KNEW it would be her calling for a favor and not just to chat.)
The past couple of weeks when she comes by, the first thing she does is go to the fridge to see what I have to eat or drink, and she will basically make herself a meal with whatever food I have. Half the time, I'm not sure if she's really coming over to chat or just because she's too cheap to go buy her own food!
The problem is, she is a very dear friend and I really don't know how to tell her to stop this behavior without hurting her feelings. I'm so frustrated that I'm afraid if I confront her, I will end up biting her head off! Any advice on a *kind* way to let her know she's being too moochy? THANKS.
