    Default Losing an office bet - your take on this? *fluff*

    *This is based on real life events. Names have been changed to protect the innocent. These are their stories*

    Floyd works in an office. He occasionally likes to have bets with his colleagues Chuck, Randy and Kate. The bets are fun and usually based on menial stuff.

    Floyd makes a bet that he loses to his colleagues, which means Floyd has to go to McDonald's to do a drive-thru ‘cheeseburger run’ for Chuck, Randy and Kate.

    Floyd doesn’t pay up on his bet straight away. His colleagues remind him every few days that he still needs to do the cheeseburger run.

    Randomly on a Friday afternoon, Floyd makes a call from his mobile to the office to let Chuck know he’s planning to do the cheeseburger run. Chuck informs Floyd that Kate has been given an early mark, and he himself is planning to leave any minute, which would only leave Randy in the office. Chuck therefore tells Floyd it’s no use to do it that day.

    Floyd returns to the office on Monday and tells his colleagues that he feels he satisfied the requirement of the bet by intending to attempt (but not following through with) the cheeseburger run on Friday. He says it wasn’t his fault that his colleagues left early.

    Your thoughts? Should Floyd be let off the hook, or should he pay up on the cheeseburgers?

    For some reason the music from SVU (especially the bang bang) is running through my head.

    Yes, cheeseburgers are still owed! Something tells be there will be no cheeseburgers...

    no, Floyd needs to pay up. he lost the bet and he isn't off the hook until he delivers with the goods. an unplanned attempt that resulted in him not being able to deliver said goods does not excuse him.

    what a stinge, 3 cheeseburgers is like $10. sheesh. maybe Floyd should be excluded from future fluff bets if he is too tight to deliver on the goods when he loses!

    Ummm.. the bet was to 'buy collegues cheeseburgers so they can actually eat them' not 'tell them you are getting them now and when they inform you that they are not there decide you have done it because you happen to drive through the drive through' soooo.. my conclusion - guilty of not following through with consequences of losing the bet.
