ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY Social Dilemma is about a friend who pushes boundaries…or is it her? Here is the email I received.
Hi Jaime. Here’s something that happened to me and I think it’s a good question for your show. My neighbor and I have a pretty friendly relationship, but I think she’s starting to take advantage of it. She started returning to the office about a month ago, and since I’m still working from home, she asked me to sign for some of her packages on several occasions, and I was happy to do so. Well, yesterday she asked me if I would sign for the delivery of her new bed and let the delivery people come into her house to bring it. While that may not seem like a big deal, I think that’s a bit too much to ask. First of all, it’s a much bigger responsibility than a small package. Plus, I’d have to make sure I’m home for six hours so I don’t miss them. I could be home all day, but maybe not. What if I want to go out for lunch? If I did that, I’d be stuck in the house all day. When I turned her down, she laughed and told me I was selfish. What do you think? Am I wrong to say no? What would you have done? Thanks

Well, I think I’m on Team Neighbor for that. I like to help my neighbors when I can, and they always help me. I know asking someone to stay for six hours waiting for their mattress to come is a lot, but as long as you let them know you’ll do it for once, I will. But if I asked a neighbor and he said no, I certainly wouldn’t be upset, I would understand.
What do you think? Who was right here? Was Olivia selfish or did her neighbor overstep? Let’s help Olivia and let me know TRY the Facebook page.
