Today's social dilemma happened a couple of weeks ago when I was out to dinner with some friends. We were all together because an old friend of ours was in town, and we hadn't seen her in several years. Anyway, as part of our conversation over dinner, She started talking about how her daughter is a junior in high school and trying to think about different careers. Now within our group we had two teachers, a social worker, me, a radio person, and a police officer. So she was asking each of us about our jobs and then she asked how much money each of us made. Well, everyone at the table started laughing. But she was serious. So I gave her a ballpark answer. But no one else would tell her. Now I wasn't going to tell her what the exact amount of my paycheck was, but I didn't mind giving her some insight into what a radio person makes, but the rest of my friends thought it was waaaay too personal of a question. Now I've had strangers ask me how much I make and I am not a fan of that, but a friend, sure I'll clue them into it. But not the rest of my gang. So what about you? Do you think it's okay to ask someone how much they make or is that stepping over the friendship line? Let me know what you think on the TRY Facebook page.
