Hypothetical: Helping people versus screwing people over.

I'm witnessing a situation that has me intrigued, and thought it would make a good poll.

Imagine that you have a Class-A friend. A Class-A friend is the Barney Rubble to your Fred Flintstone. You do things together and hang out together all the time, and you talk about stuff passionately, like whether K-Mart would have been better than Target if Jaclyn Smith had been used more extensively as a spokeswoman.

You have a chance to do something for your A-friend that you think will be really cool. And big. Like, you can set him up on a date with a woman who has exactly the same kinky fetishes that he does. Or you can point him to his all-time favorite car, a 1981 DeLorean, at an absurdly low price. Or you can get him a deal on a Panda Express franchise, and we all know that a Panda Express franchise is a lock on wealth.

However, this gesture on your part comes with a catch. In order to help your A-friend, you know that you're going to publicly screw someone else over, another person that you know. This person is not a Class-A friend, and they're either already set up to go out with the kinky woman, or they're already negotiating on the DeLorean, or they just signed a lease on a Popeye's chicken next door to the Panda Express site.

This person will know that you screwed them over, and it's going to destroy the relationship. So do you do it?

I'll give you four scenarios of people who get screwed over. In all cases, you're helping your Class-A friend at the expense of these people.


Scenario 1 - Screwing over a Class-B friend.

A Class-B friend is a friend who you'll invite to every party, and you'll socialize with them one-on-one occasionally.

Scenario 2 - Screwing over a Class-C friend.

A Class-C friend is a friend that you'll occasionally invite to parties if you need to fill out a list. They're fun to talk with when you see them.

Scenario 3 - Screwing over a Class-D friend.

A Class-D friend is someone you don't ever really think about, but they're fun to talk to when you happen to run into them.

Scenario 4 - Screwing over a Class-E acquaintance.

An acquaintance is a person you see occasionally and are friendly with, but your relationship is shallow and it takes you a minute to remember their name when you see them.

Scenario 5 - Screwing over a Class-F acquaintance, which is you don't really like, but are friendly with.

A Class-F acquaintance is someone who annoys you and you try to avoid them if you see them first, but at the same time you're not unfriendly at all and you wave in a friendly manner if you see them across the room.

Scenario 6 - Screwing over a Class-G friendly stranger.

A friendly stranger is someone you don't know, but they seemed nice during the minor interaction you had with them.

I wouldn't screw anyone over. Obviously, if I have no choice and one person HAS to be screwed it would anyone that's a lower class friend/acquaintance.

1) Never take from another man's happiness to increase your own.
2) No matter what you steal from someone it will always be worth more to them than you...

I only really have one Class A friend in my life, and he needs a few favors more than anything.

I'd screw over anyone for that guy, and we'd have a good laugh about it.

It's win-win.

What if it is a class D or lower person willing to kill you to death when you do occasionally run into them? I never thought about that.

I must say, I'm shocked at these results. 14% of you would sacrifice a Class-B friendship to help out a Class-A friend? And 25% would sacrifice a Class-C friendship for that purpose? And perhaps the most shocking of all, 65% would sacrifice a Class-D friend? Wow.

My philosophy is that a Class-A friend wouldn't expect you to destroy relationships to help them, so there's no harm done if you don't. I voted no on everything but the Class-G friendly stranger, and even then I felt kind of bad about it.
