There was me trying to help when son pointed out he had made no request so I was interfering. I must agree that uninvited assistance may be neither wanted or welcome. The dictionary too agrees with his view but does that mean one can never help another unless a request is made. If wish to help another, how then to secure an invitation? Today a question not an answer. I will see what wisdom the internet has to share another day.
Have a good day
Hope you take my daily sign off as intended, no intention to interfere by telling you what you should do.
Have a great day.
