Scenario: You have a huge trip coming up that you’ve been planning for months now, but you get a phone call stating that you need to send money to a family member in order to get them out of a really bad bind. The kind of bind that’s possibly life or death because of the stress involved if I don’t send the money. We’re not talking chump change, but $2500. Of course, sending the money means you won’t be able to go on your trip and possibly disappointing many people.
What would you do?
