Are You The "Chauffeur" or Do You Take Turns?

In your group of friends
When you and your friends take little trips or go somewhere in the group, are you always the one driving or do people take turns?

I'm not talking about driving for one hour and then your friend drives, I'm mostly talking about who's taking their car and spending their money on gas.

I'm always on the one driving my friends when we go out to eat or go out of town. And I am usually told by other people that if they are the one to drive, their friends give them gas money or at least pay for their meals. But not once have my friends done that for me.

Well actually twice they've done that for me. One friend gave me a ten to take them to BJs and another gave me a twenty to drive to the casino. But that was a least two years ago...

And now I hesitate to call them up to go hang out or eat because I don't want to drive them everywhere. And then when they go eat out, they never invite me. One time they actually did asked if I wanted to go eat, I asked if they could pick me up. Then the person who was driving had the nerve to say "No! I don't want to drive to her house then go over there."

ANYWAY, sorry it just became a rant but you know what I mean...right?

I guess every group is different.

I don't ever drive when we all hangout which is often,

it just all depends on the person.

I never actually drove a group of friends, just 1 person a time. Well except for family, but usually I don't ask them to pay for gas unless it's like going out of my way like picking him/her up from somewhere. But if it's really far I just remind them when we're at a restaurant and have them pay for me.

Yeah, which is one reason why I refuse to drive little kids around.

im usually the chaffeur but thats only because i have passenger seat anxiety going anywhere more than 5 miles from my house... so i prefer to drive which works out perfectly because all my close friends HATE driving. so i drive and depending on our destination they'll either buy me coffee, lunch/dinner, pay for parking or pay for gas.

i feel bad but most of us don't have our licences yet, let alone our own car (which they do)

when i get my permit i will try to take them more :P

Not anymore. And kinda never was.

When I had a car I never minded driving anywhere...at the time gas wasnt as outrageous as it is now but...probably because before I had a car my friends drove me EVERYWHERE and never asked a cent from me. And when I had a car I would return the favor with no questions asked. If we ever went out drinking i never minded that whoever the sober one was drive my car to whoever lived closest lol. And if it was a trip gas would always be decided before we went anywhere.

However I was never shy about giving my friends gas money or paying for a meal or drink. Its the least I could do. Now that I dont have a car my friends drive and pick me up just like old times lol...except I always end up making it up to them...whether it be paying for food and alchi or splitting gas. Like now...me and 5 of my friends are planning a trip to Vegas Monday and my best friend and I are splitting the car rental :) Its things like that which keep me around lol.

The major reason why I never really minded driving is because I have an EXCELLENT sense of direction and I hate being lost or asking other people to tell me where to go. I'd rather just drive us all there in one piece and get us back without all the hassel...Most of my friends are horrendus at directions :/
