I have a friend who doesn't speak English very well. She once asked me to help her with a small text that had just about two paragraphs and I helped her, correcting the mistakes that she made.
After a while, she sent me 4 documents with many pages, and a lot of mistakes.
I don't want to keep reviewing these, but I also don't want to offend her or lose her friendship. I said I was too busy once, then I just ignored when she asked again (after a few months!). It's been another few months, and again she's asking me to review those same 4 documents.
How can I politely refuse to do that and stop her from asking me to do it?
- These documents are related to a hobby of hers, it's not for university or for her job.
- I don't have the time nor the will of reviewing it. She's not offering to pay me and even if she was, I wouldn't want to review it anyway.
- My main goal is to get her to stop asking for reviewing. I wish her luck with her hobby, but I'm not willing to engage more in helping her to find a way to get these documents reviewed - we are not that close.
