Question Tendency to creep forward with A/C on

I have noticed that when the A/C compressor is turned on and thus the idle engine RPM is increased slightly, there's a stronger tendency to creep forward than when the default engine RPM is lower and A/C off. Do you experience the same? Normal?

Every car I have ever owned with A/C and an Automatic Transmission has done this. So my experience and logic says this is quite normal.

Is this your first car with A/C and an automatic transmission?

My previous vehicle was a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan w/ 4 speed auto and A/C, but surprisingly, don't remember it being this different w/ and w/out A/C on. Even the '09 CR-V I own at the moment doesn't show much difference if any. Wait, CR-V or any Honda in general don't have any torque at all, so it's understandable.

Thanks for the reply.
