A Woman Agreed to Give Her Friend a Lift to An Important Job Interview, but The Friend Insisted on Violating a Traffic Regulation, Was the Woman Wrong for Refusing the Ride?”

A young woman, eager to help her new friend, offered her a ride to a job interview. But her friend’s refusal to wear a seatbelt ignited a tense argument, putting their friendship to the test. Here is what the woman had to say:

The woman said, “I joined a hiking group a few months ago to make some new friends. There, I met a girl named Reese. We share a lot of the same interests and we became pretty good friends.”

Recently, Reese had been searching for a higher-paying job. She finally secured an interview, but her car had broken down and she needed a lift to the interview. She asked the woman, who agreed, as Reese’s apartment and the interview location were close to her own apartment.

On the day of the interview, the woman drove to Reese’s apartment, and they both got into the car. However, as the woman was pulling out of the parking lot, she noticed that Reese wasn’t wearing her seatbelt. Feeling uncomfortable driving without seatbelts, the woman kindly asked Reese to buckle up, assuming she had just forgotten.

However, Reese told her that she never wore a seatbelt! The woman immediately stopped the car and insisted that Reese wear her seatbelt before they continued on their journey.

The woman explained what happened next, “Reese got upset and said that her uncle died in a car accident because he got twisted up in his seatbelt and wasn’t able to get out of the car before it exploded, so she doesn’t wear a seatbelt for ‘safety reasons.’”

“I felt terrible for her”, the woman said, “but I stood firm.” She explained to Reese how she didn’t feel comfortable driving her without a seatbelt as she was worried about her safety and also didn’t want to receive a fine if the police stopped them.

But Reese grew increasingly frustrated, arguing that it was only a short drive and the chances of an accident were low. She also said she was a grown woman, and her choices were hers to make. The woman responded by saying she was also a grown woman, who could make the decision to not drive someone if they refused to wear a seatbelt.

This argument continued for a while until the woman suggested Reese take an Uber if she felt strongly about not wearing a seatbelt. This led to Reese calling her a “jerk” before leaving the car. The woman then decided to drive away without her.

Was The Woman In The Wrong?

Later, Reese texted the woman, blaming her for being late to the interview and potentially missing out on the job. The woman responded by reminding Reese that all she needed to do was wear a seatbelt and that being late was a result of her own choices. In response, Reese said the woman wasn’t understanding her trauma and accused her of being controlling.

One person said, “As a medical surgery nurse, I have seen the results of people not wearing seatbelts. It’s gruesome. Reese made herself late.”

Another Person Commented

“Not only were you actually concerned about her safety, you didn’t want to break the law. Like I’m so sorry for her uncle, but she should look up stats for how many car accidents turn fatal because someone wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.”
