Should I tell my friend that I replaced her daughter’s goldfish?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s TRY 98.3 social dilemma is about house sitting and fish. Here is the mail :

Hi Jaime and hello, my name is Lexi and I’ve been a long time listener to your dilemma and wanted to get your opinion on something. So I was housesitting for a friend while she was on vacation with her family. I watch the dog and feed her daughter’s goldfish. Well the goldfish died the other day, and I didn’t know what to do so I went to the pet store to see if I could find another fish. When I arrived I noticed there were a ton of goldfish in an aquarium that looked like my friend’s daughter’s fish. So I bought a new fish and replaced the dead one. They’re coming home from vacation tomorrow and I don’t know if I should bother to tell my friend what happened. Do you think I should or just keep it for the dog and myself? Thanks a lot.


I think I would tell the mom and dad, and then I would let them decide whether or not to tell their daughter. That’s my point of view anyway.
