Our social dilemma today comes from Alan. He's in a tough situation and needs our help.
Hey Jaime. Thanks for playing such great music everyday. I love the social dilemmas. I have a bunch I could tell you about but right now I want to ask about one that is happening now in my life. I hope you can talk about it, because the event is happening in early October. This is the deal. My wife planned to go to a concert with her friends on October 6th to see Rick Springfield. They bought tickets months ago. Last week I found out my office is having a big dinner celebration for an award we won. It's on the same day as the concert, but work would like us to bring our spouses. It's a big deal for me because for our office NEVER throws big events like this for the staff and I'll hate being by myself. She doesn't want to miss the show since she planned it with her friends a long time ago. I don't know what to do. I'd like her to be with me but I know she was looking forward to that night with her friends. I know I could guilt her into it, but don't know if I should. HELP Me please!!!! Thanks so much - Alan
