When someone is asked to do something on behalf of a friend, and they agree, but then act like they've made huge sacrifices and should be repaid 100 times more.
Craig: Hey Mike, since you're going to the store anyway, can you pick me up on the way? I need some groceries too.

Mike: Sure.

(2 weeks later)

Mike: Hey Craig, you owe me at least 5 dollars in gas money for taking you to the store, I'm sick of you asking for rides all the time.

Craig: What are you talking about? I've only asked you twice, plus I bought you a six pack at the store both times, helped you move last week, and set you up on two dates last month! You've got such a martyr complex.
