If you had something somebody wanted... But you also wanted it....

Would you give it to them or keep it for yourself.

I was thinking about this after reading another thread (about the 'lost' trainfare) because it reminded me of something that happened ages ago.

My organisation had some corporate tickets to an event that were given away on a first come, first serve basis. I queued up 15 minutes before the allocated collection time and there were a few people ahead of me.

A guy from my office turned up at the allocated time and realised that the number in the queue equalled the number of tickets, meaning he couldn't get one. He saw me.

Later that day, he asked me for his ticket. I thought he was joking as the event is very much a female interest. He kept on asking and putting pressure on me saying he really wanted to go. I said no and he eventually gave up ad left.

I did feel guilty as he really wanted the ticket and seemed to want it more than me, but, I suspect he wanted to impress a female by presenting it to her.

What would you have done?

Told the cheeky sod to do one tbh! You queued up in good time to get the ticket and got it by right. He was trying it on.

I would have said no. He had no right to put pressure on you in that way, fair enough to ask once but not to ask repeatedly. I think I would have felt like a bit of a mug handing over a ticket I wanted just because someone pressurised me.

In this situation I would have kept it, he was rude imo.
Perhaps if a close friend had really wanted it, and had asked nicely (or better still not asked but you knew them well enough to know) then perhaps I would have considered it...
