How about this...Someone you have known for only two weeks, and spent less time then that being around, has told you something grave.


She has told you that you seem nice, for some reason she trusts you, and wants to ask you a question. She continues to say how she has been diagnosed with a serious condition that requires surgery. The chance of survival is about 50:50.


The question was if I would consider, in the event of her passing, take her very well behaved, and sweet bilingual dog. Ironically she heard me the night before say how unprepared I am for dog ownership and how I am more of a cat person. But she asked me anyway.


What advice would you give to someone who is sincerely flattered that the person thought so much of them; yet needs to inform the person that he is the wrong candidate / selection for her beloved dog. She emphasizes that she has no one else to ask, and that it is only me she trusts.


It is kind of an interesting scenario that happened to me recently. Thought it might get your advice column moving!

i would say take it just so you can have her in your memory, and if it means so much to her then its imporant enough to jus get over it, but if you really arent ready, you need to tell her and be honest and sweet about it. tell her a family member of hers should be reasonable, and if she doesn have any, just be sweet and refuse
