Today's social dilemma came from an email I received from Lori. I think it's so interesting and she wants our take on her situation, so let's get to it. Hi Jaime, My boyfriend is not allowed drive due to a DWI he got a couple of years ago. He expects me to drive him to work everyday and even though the total time to get him to work and back is only 30 minutes, it disrupts my entire morning. I don't believe it is my responsibility to get him to work, especially when he has a number of other options available to him. This is becoming an issue between us because I really want my mornings back. It is the only time for me to be by myself, reflect and prepare for the day. Needless to say, mornings in my household are not very fun right now. He thinks I am being unreasonable, unsupportive and selfish. I think this is his problem. He put himself in this position and I really don't think I am obligated to take him to work, just because I live with him. I would love to hear what you and your listeners think. Is it my responsibility to take him to work or do I have a right to tell him to find another ride? Thank you for being awesome. ~ Lori For me, I think this is a no-brainer. I don't think Lori is at all responsible for her boyfriend. Sure it would be nice to help out from time to time, but taking him to work every single day seems waaaaay over the top to me. There's Uber and Lyft and buses and cabs, and I think since he got himself into the trouble, it's his responsibility to figure out how to get to work. What do you think? Let's help Lori out. Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
