Moving can be a daunting task, especially if you don’t have anyone to help you. However, people tend to have strong opinions about asking your friends to help you move.
Austin-based tech “founder” @cathrynylavery, received backlash after responding snarkily to a friend’s offer to help her move. Instead of expressing gratitude, she stated “I would never ask a friend to help me move. I’m an adult.” She later clarified that she only meant the heavy stuff, but her initial response was seen as a privileged stance.
Twitter users criticized the idea that asking for help is bad and highlighted the financial realities of hiring movers. The tweet sparked a discussion about how helping friends can strengthen relationships rather than destroy them.
