would you chip in?

hypothetical question

someone you dont 'really like' at work is the only one not going to the ball becuase they

cant afford it


(ist a very small fee BTW)

....yet brags about how many pints they consume on the weekend and the designer clothers they purchased along with £25 for hair cuts etc etc

would you chip in as your fellow work mates are

you would be the only one who didnt if you dont put your hand in your pocket

    i've refused to chip in for cakes for workmate's birthdays before - if i don't even like them then i'm not paying for their bloody cake.

    All I need is a big gun and a coupe that's crazy quick...

    I probarbly would. But i would mention that next time, a few less pints and leaving behind that designer shirt would make sure he/she would not have to borrow money from other people. And before you say it, yes i would genuinely say that, mainly because it would be beneficial to the person imo.

    Depends on how much I disliked the person mate

    Mild dislike -- Yes I would chip in, and I'd think of it purely as money to keep the working environment running smoothly. A small monetary contribution to make my own working life easier. An investment really

    Strong dislike -- Nah fcuk em. And maybe mug them at the ball if they do go

    well if i had decided to go as well then i would.

    Its always best to keep things smooth at work within reasonable limits otherwise you create more stress.

    id use your pleasure vs pain theory here.

    1 moments when you stump up the money vs days of being the office asshole.

    in principal though i would not want to pay up. such is life.

    Depends on how solvent you are (or at least at the time of the whip round) and the amount of money involved.

    I wouldn't be bothered to chuck in a few bob if say I had just been paid and it meant the 'team' would have a better night.

    However if we're talking like £20 and I'm pretty skint myself then no way, you can sing for it.

    I'd hover a quid over the pot but use sleight of hand to drop a non-legal tender 1/2p in instead....

    I wouldn't, if I didn't like him then I wouldn't care about him going to a ball because he spent his money on alcohol.

    even though everyone will think you are an asshole for not doing it?

    if you chip in chances are if it happens again everyone will resent him doing it, rather than targetting you as being the office git for not paying. its not the way it should be i agree, but its the reality of it isnt it.

    I wouldn't take a moral stand, not in an office. Most of the people you work with are probably little dweebs.

    I would just say I'm broke.

    if i'd worked there long enough to be established so to speak then no.

    if i'd not long been there and there was a chance this could have a negative effect in anyway then yes

    It's finally arrived....PM Neb for swaps!
