ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY Social Dilemma came from Helen. Here’s her email: 

Hi Jaime. I had a real dilemma over the weekend and I’m wondering what others would have done. I can tell you my husband got very upset with me for what I did. Here’s what happened. I love to go to yard sales, garage sales, estate sales, you know what I mean. My husband is not a fan so I usually go alone or with friends. This past Saturday I saw that there was a yard sale two neighborhoods over from where I live. I went over and was looking around but didn’t see anything worth buying. I also happened to be the only one there at the time which is odd because usually garage sales are very popular where I live. Anyway, I was about to leave without buying anything and then I saw a sign behind the woman selling the stuff that said all the proceeds were going to her grandchild’s cancer treatments. So of course I started looking back around and bought a really ugly lamp that she was selling for $20. I gave her $40 for it, and she took it. I brought the lamp home and explained to my husband and he was so angry. He said it was all probably a scam. I don’t think so…at least I hope not. What would you have done in that situation? I can’t wait to hear. Thanks Jaime

Well, I’m with Helen all the way. I probably would have given her $50. And if the woman was scamming, well that’s on her. At least I would know I had done the right thing. That’s my take anyway.

What do you think? What would you have done? Would you be mad at your spouse or be glad they helped out. Let’s help Helen out and let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
