After reading the MY STUFF post it reminded me of a gripe of my own that's been coming up a lot lately. I don't like when people take over a task from me to help me without asking. This is usually friends/family at home. For example if I am at the counter struggling to spoon food onto my plate, don't grab the spoon out of my hand and do it for me. Sometimes even though it takes me a long time and I struggle, sometimes I just want to do things by myself. My husband always asks first ("do you want help?") and if I want help I gratefully agree, if not I tell him no. But my mom and mother in law are the worst offenders for hovering over me and swooping in to help without asking. It drives me nuts!
