Is it a lot to ask of someone to pick them up from the hospital after surgery? (Not intense procedure but still requires anesthesia)

I wouldn’t think so. I would think in a situation like this, someone you know would be willing to help. It doesn’t hurt to ask. If someone gives you a hard time about it, maybe reconsider your relationship with that person. Asking for help is hard but we have all needed help at one point and will need help again in the future. ❤️

Not if it’s family/close friend, you give them decent notice ahead of time, and it’s not a super far drive (>1 hour each way imo)

Many are happy to help if it isn’t too inconvenient or happens a lot. Makes people feel good to help a friend in need.

Not at all. I would happily offer to pick up a friend / neighbor / colleague from hospital after their procedure, even if we’re not very close.

Not a lot, if they can plan ahead of time.
