    Unpacking your own stuff is bad enough let alone doing someone elses!

    Ok. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't overreacting.

    I definitely wouldn't unpack without asking first. If someone did I wouldn't be overly upset though. Frustrated yes, but I don't think I would make a huge deal of it.

    I've helped my sister a few times but always ask or she will tell me what to do would never just do things

    When we moved people helped with furniture (setting up beds ect) and big boxes everyone knows me well enough not to touch my stuff or even consider unpacking for me

    No way! Only if they asked me to unpack and gave me specific directions on where to put the stuff.

    We had lots of help last time we moved but all our helpers came to me for direction on where things went and what they could do next.
    I felt like i was conducting a show but it was great.

    Had they gone off on their own tangents and unpack whatever they liked id prob have been unimpressed

    I would offer, I would not just start doing it off my own bat.

    If someone started unpacking without asking, I would not be angry, I would assume their motive was coming from a place of wanting to help
