What would you do if you were Cliff?

Cliff and Claudia are siblings(兄弟姊妹)of two years apart. They attend(參與)hip hop classes every Saturday afternoon. This past weekend the lesson was extended(延長)due to the rehearsal for a performance. They missed(錯過)the bus they usually take. Claudia was in a rush to get home so she could watch the final episode (大結局)of her favourite Korean programme. The only way was to take a cab(的士). Cli ff used up al l his allowance(零用錢)for the week already and did not want to spend on taxi fare(車錢). Claudia was in a rush and waved for a taxi without discussing the money matter with Cliff . The following Saturday, she asked Cliff to pay back the expense of the ride home. 

What would you do if you were Cliff? 

  • I’d surely refuse(拒絕)to pay back my sister because we never agreed to share the cost. It was not my need(需要), I could have waited for the next bus as I was not in a rush. Moreover(再者), I was so broke(極窮)on that day, even if she asked, I’d reject(拒絕)her. I assumed (假定)it was a free ride. If taking a cab was her only choice, she would have to do so with or without me. I would not even talk to her about the incident. 
  • I’d explain the misunderstanding(誤會). I’d suggest that she should have asked me immediately and not drag(拖延)the issue. That would give us a chance to discuss while the memory was still fresh (記憶猶新). If she insisted(堅持)that I had to share with her because she needed money, I would lend her the amount of the fare but she would need to return(還) that to me. In future, I’d take note that clarification(澄清)comes before (重要過)action.
