@jlc3:  ugh that just puts a bad taste in my mouth.  I wouldn’t say anything (bc starting something over this is probably not worth it), but I would just be unavailable if he keeps asking.  like, “I’m swamped at work” “I have an appointment” and if you took the train.  (I’m saying flat out lie each time, but hey- you could have an appointment with your favorite book and a glass of wine 🙂 ) If you’re consistently not around, then he will hopefully stop asking.

If he doesnt get the hint, however, then he might need you to explain you’re not a courier service.

lol.. I would’ve been like, where my case of beer/bottle of wine in lieu of gas money??

If he can’t pick it up, he should let others win it. It’s that simple.

i’d pick up the prize and keep it/use it for myself. just tell him “oops i lost it!”. then he won’t ask you to pick up the prizes anymore. 🙂

I would be unavailable from here on out. If he does ask again I would reject him, making sure he knows how much of a hassle it is. Example:

“Oh no I’m sorry, I can’t do that. My car is in the shop. I have to take the train. Even if I did have my car I would have to miss out on lunch and take an hour to drive to pick it up. I’m sorry, it’s not possible.”

I’m guessing (hoping) that he doesn’t understand how much of a pain it is for you.
