Is someone using you because of what you do?
I do shirt printing & only have certain ppl in my life pop in when they need something done. They think I can drop everything & do it now, quick & cheap. I’m popular when ppl need favors.

I'm a pastry chef too and my fianc's friends think it's an invite for me to make everything for them for a "discount". Like stuff ain't free
massage therapist. I had a friend who would only contact me when she wanted a massage. At first she said we would trade, then she would get the massage and then tell me she couldn’t afford to pay me, and then just expected them to be free. Needless to say, we are not friends anymore.

work in dogs and people are only friends with me because they want free training and hookups to breeders. It goes south when they realize I expect them to put in work, stop treating the dog like a human and care more where their dogs come from instead of going to parvo (puppy) barn
hubby is a cop and we have a friend that only comes around when he gets a ticket or in trouble with the law. He asks my hubby to help him out or call someone to take care of it..... so annoying cause hubby can''t do anything about it.
