Would you do this?

We have a family we have known for 10 years. We used to get together every few months with other families but haven't in about 6 years. We ran into them in July at a wedding and haven't spoken since. They moved to the town where dh works but they don't run into each other. I got a call from the wife yesterday (she got my number from a mutual friend) saying she got a speeding ticket and wanted to know if dh could make it go away. Dh just laughed and told her the best way to make tickets go away is pay them and not speed again. He explained if she didn't have the money she could go to court and work out a payment plan. But she said she didn't want all the hassle. Dh has always made it very clear he will never 'fix' anyones ticket so don't bother to ask but I guess she thought it was worth a shot.I could understand if she was in a really desperate situation like the kids were going to starve and she was facing jail time and it was her only hope. But they have plenty of money and she was just "annoyed " (was how she put it) that she had to deal with this. It just really bothered me, I would never ask anyone for something like that and certainly not someone I hadn't talked with in 4 years.

That's pretty brazen. I would never ask someone to make something I did wrong to go away. I would be embarrassed!! And the fact you haven't spoken in 6 years is just all the more bold.

I thought so too. If I got a ticket I would be worried they would find out not calling to ask them to fix it.

Re: Would you do this?

That's pretty selfish! No way would I ask someone "make something go away" because I'm too lazy to do it myself for something I'm at fault for....especially from someone I don't keep in contact with.

Wow she's got some balls.
That's so tacky. And asking someone she doesn't talk to.

She sounds like a piece of work!

Wow she really called and asked that!? I barely ask my really good friends for favors and never anything like that.
