Immoral to accept an apartment without standing in the company queue (

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I need you opinion on a situation.

 

I know the owner of an apartment building.

 

Usually the owner find new persons to rent apartments to by using a queue that is free for anybody to get into.

 

I am not in that queue. But the owner has offered me an apartment anyway.

 

If I accept the apartment I will get an apartment before the persons in the queue without standing in it myself.

 

Is it immoral of me to accept the apartment? Immoral because I "cut the line".

 

This question has tormented me and therefor I would appreciate your views on this.

Don't be an egalitarian. The owner clearly has faith in you as a tenant, and would prefer to have someone he knows inhabit his property, rather than gamble on a stranger.

To a great extent, success in life consists of taking cognizance of your "unfair advantages," and making the most of them.

The man with the gold makes all the rules.

 

It's the owner's building, why can he not do with it what he pleases, appearently renting to you is what he wants to do, who are you to stand in his way?

hmm just noticed the OP, company queue?

 

I would not take an apartment 'before' a coworker or especially a superior, if you mean that tenants of the building are in the same company, bad mojo

Thank you very much for your assistance. I see more clearly that the owner may see me as a preferable tenant compared to unknown persons.

It is not a company queue so I won't step on any company toes.

I now am willing to accept the apartment.

This is an important decicion for me so I am grateful for your help.

It warmed my heart to receive your help on this.
