Social Dilemma-Is It Okay to Ask Someone How Much Money They Make?

Today's 98.3 TRY Social Dilemma came from Denise, and it's about money. Here's her email: Hi Jaime. I have a question and I'm wondering if this qualifies as a social dilemma. I have a daughter who is a junior in high school and thinking about different careers. The other day I was out with some good friends and in the course of our conversation I thought I would ask each of them about their particular jobs. One is a high school teacher, one is a police officer, and one is a social worker. They each told me how they loved their jobs and picked the right careers etc. But then I asked how much money they each made. Well, you would have thought I dropped a bomb. One person, the teacher, told me how much she made, but the other two would not say a word. They thought it was much too personal of a question to ask. Now we've all been friends for years so I didn't think I was overstepping. I mean one friend told me. So I thought I would ask you. Did I go to far with our friendship by asking that question or do you think it's okay to have those conversations with your good friends? Thanks Jaime ~ Denise. Well I don't have a problem giving a ballpark answer to my close friends who ask about money. I am not a fan of strangers asking that question. But close friends, no problem. But that's just me. What do you think? Did Denise step over the friendship line? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
