I'm trying not to feel guilty

My team mate and I agreed to rotate parent pick up duty. I'd take 2 days and she'd take 2 days and we'd rotate Fridays. I took 2 Fridays in a row because she was gone last week. Today she asks me if I'll take today because we were off. Nope. I did 2 Fridays in a row. And we were off for her day yesterday too.

I'm trying not to feel badly. She's proven over and over again in the last 6 years she won't go out of her way to help me. She won't even help me if it doesn't require extra work on her part. She can do it.

Please tell me I'm being reasonable.

Nope, you are being very reasonable. If you let her continue to take advantage of you, then she will continue to do it. You are setting boundaries that are best for you!

There’s nothing unreasonable about your position. Your teammate is a slacker!

Thank you all. I knew I was right, but it’s nice to hear. She’s a very difficult colleague.

I would happily refuse her request. Never allow yourself to be taken advantage of.

Her request doesn't even make sense if you hadn't taken 2 Fridays in a row. You were off on her day, which means she has done fewer duties than expected for the week.

If there’s no school, it shouldn’t be anyone’s day and not count in your rotation. The next Friday should definitely be her day. I think she should feel guilty for asking you to take it.

I wouldn't even rotate with her...

It's just too easy for her to take advantage. Or what if she doesn't show up on "her" day and a child gets hurt when it's your day (on paper) and you weren't there? I'd just do my days and have her do her days and stop being her rotation teammate.
