Friends who take but don't give.

I like to help my friends out. If asked for help I generally go out of my way to help them and even if not asked I like to help out where I can. I'm not trying to talk myself up, that's just a fact. I recently have helped one certain friend a lot [ie. cooked some dinners, lent my car (and gas) for an airport run and beach day, helped her move... ] Now I don't expect any compensation, I volunteered of my own accord, but I recently asked this friend to water my plants while I'm away and if I could borrow some shampoo. She was unwilling to help me out both times. I have to admit, this really pisses me off. How can people take so much and never give? Am I out of line to be annoyed, because other then her seeming to be selfish she really is a great person?
