Should I Make My Friend Pay For A Fender Bender With My Car? – Daily Dilemma [POLL]
The "Daily Dilemma" on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone's problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don't have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can't agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we'd love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
Here is today's dilemma:
I just got a new car a month ago. To celebrate, my friend and I went on a road trip, and we took turns driving.
But during one of our stops, my friend had a little accident. He opened up the door, it hit the gas pump, and now there's a nasty dent in the side.
He was really apologetic about the whole thing, but obviously I'm still angry that it happened.
It's going to cost about $800 to fix, and I feel like my friend should pay for the damage, or at least offer to help. But I don't want to make things awkward between us.
I also know my friend doesn't have that kind of money, and I COULD pay for it on my own.
Should I ask my friend to pay for the car? Or should I pay for it on my own, even though it wasn't my fault?
