So I have a question.
One of my VERY good friends is moving back home to Texas from Chicago in a couple of weeks. She called me the other day and wanted to know if I would be willing to fly up to Chicago help her move some stuff, then UHAUL it back down to the Lone Start State.
She's offered to pay for the ticket (which she booked today), pay for the UHAUL, pay for food, pay for a motel (just in case we get tired), drive me all the way home from after we unload the stuff at her parents house.
Now, I am poor but not that damn poor. She offered to pay me well to help her move. She's desperate to get the hell out of Illinois and come back due to personal reasons. I am willing to help her which is no big deal. I requested off from work.
The question is: should I take her up on all of her offers? I don't want to seem needy and I am helping her out. But I am really poor and use a few extra bucks and I don't mind shelling out for the gas and a meal here and there.
How can I go on this trip and not seem needy or selfish? I don't want to seem greedy and what not. She says money is not a problem for her but once she gets home it's back to looking for another job. . . any ideas?
