Welcome to Truthful Tuesday, a prompt originally set by PCGuyIV, covered by Melanie and now one I am temporarily hosting until he wants to take it back.
Unlike Fibbing Friday, the concept is quite simple in that I ask a question and you reply honestly and truthfully.
You can either leave your reply in the comments or write your own post and pingback to this one, then leave a link in the comments so that I can find it.
My question this week is
If someone offered you a considerable amount of money for doing them a favour, would you take it?
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

My answer is short and sweet this week.
Not if it exceeded the worth of the favour in my opinion
Excellent point Deb
Yes, I would, if I knew they could genuinely afford to do it.
Depends on what the favour was though, yes?
Yes, fair enough.
Here’s mine. Pingbacks aren’t working (again)
It would depend on whether the favor was legal and moral, who the person asking me to do it was, and whether I considered the amount of money involved to be adequate compensation for the favor performed. I think that covers everything.
Just about! Thanks John
Hi Di 🙂 here is mine!
Here is my answer:
It surprises me that almost everyone in the comments assume that there must be some immoral reason to offer money for a favor, or that it’s a complete stranger. So strange. I guess my world really is a bit different…
My question didn’t say who the someone was, family, friend, or stranger. I would be wary myself though.
I know it didn’t. It is that fact that intrigues me. Since you did not specify, my brain jumped to doing a favor in general, who would ask and who I’d say yes to. The fact that the word “favor” is used is what made me not think of a stranger, only friends and family. I have been approached by strangers to do them a favor, which I’ve obliged, but never something that they would offer payment for. Things like handing someone something off of a tall shelf in a store, sending an elevator back down to them so they didn’t have to wait long, helping someone open a car door because their arms were full, asking for basic directions somewhere, etc. A two minute or less favor. Not something worthy of payment. That’s what makes it so interesting. Apparently, there’s a whole world out there where immoral strangers randomly approach other people to ask illegal favors of them. Also, I have never considered a favor to be anything that initially involves financial talk. to me, that is not a favor. So the fact that just my experience in life has not led me down that thought process at all when it seems to be everyone else’s experience is surprising to me.
I hope that makes sense.
It does Marla, very much.
