1. a close friend will be interviewed for a job with your employer. he asks you for a list of the questions in advance. do you supply it?
No, absolutely not. Mainly because I would hate for any of my close friends to see what I am like at work!
2. you work for an optical store. jimmy has broken his glasses and his parents are agonizing over the price of replacements. a competitor is selling identical glasses for half-price. do you send jimmy’s parents there?
3. you are a reporter. the family of a murder victim has refused your requests for picture and interview. your editor demands that you keep calling them. do you?
Yes but leave it a day or so.
