Some people prefer to do favors for others only when they voluntarily choose to do so. But when they are asked, they may consider it a burden.
The benefit of being asked by another person is knowing for certain what this person's needs actually are.
And there is even a way to fulfill this person's request voluntarily. How? By doing more than you were originally asked to do!
(From Rabbi Pliskin's book Kindness)
