Here’s my situation. I am 17 years old, and I have a girlfriend. We’ve been friends for a long time, and a few months ago we became a couple. We’re also in the same class in the same high school Our parents don’t know much about this, although her mother is a kind person and usually offers a ride home, because I use the bus. Now, I know that riding me home isn’t comfortable for them as it takes some time, they get stuck in the traffic, and then they have to do a long ride home. I explained to my girlfriend that I am thankful for what they did but that I wish to stop use their service, as I believe it isn’t right, because I can’t give something in exchange( and I don’t like that). Despite the long explaining I did, my girlfriend still wants me to take the ride( and even her mother). Now, how do I kindly decline them, as I usually do it aggressively, but this time I am willing to do this delicately.
