The Carpool Conundrum: A Lesson in Communication or a Breach of Etiquette? 🚗🤷‍♀️

So, there you have it, folks. Our 'Chauffeur of Controversy' finds herself in a sticky situation after a co-worker's request for a lift home from a BBQ bash turns into a tug-of-war over departure time. She agreed to the favor, but with the caveat that she wasn't planning on leaving early. However, her co-worker's constant hints and side-eyes to leave earlier than planned added a sour note to the evening. When her co-worker's kids swooped in to save the day, our driver thought she was off the hook, only to face passive-aggressive comments at work later. Now, she's left questioning her carpool etiquette and wondering if she was in the wrong. Let's see what the court of public opinion has to say about this... 🍿

NTA. You set clear conditions and didn't let her guilt you.
