Candy was spending time with a work husband/coworker her husband asked her not to hang out with. She told him she'd quit hanging out with her co worker but got a red light ticket with him in the car on the way to a work event!
Slacker thinks she should have stopped him from riding in the car with her in the first place. It’s partially her responsibility for allowing him to ride with her. Even if it’s a innocent act she shouldn’t have risked jeopardizing her marriage. He thinks she should intercept the ticket before he does. He doesn’t believe her act is completely innocent.
Steve doesn’t think the truth is good enough and that he won’t believe her. But he thinks the truth would be the only way to go about the situation. He doesn’t think the husband will believe what she’ll tell him but he thinks it’s the only choice she has. He thinks a lie would make the situation even worse and possibly jeopardize the marriage even more.
What do you think she should do?
I don’t think the act sounds completely innocent. I think if she respected her husband and their marriage enough she would have never gotten in the car with him. Obviously she didn’t honor his request and there has to be more reason behind it than a simple car ride.
