    Money Moral Dilemma: Should I ask my boss to pay up for carpooling? 15th May 18 at 7:38 PM
    This week's MoneySaver who wants advice asks...

    My boss (who doesn't drive) often asks me for a lift to work. It only adds a few miles to my journey but the cost over a year is a fair bit. He obviously earns a lot more than me and has never offered to contribute to fuel costs. Should I risk asking him?

    Unfortunately the MSE team can't always answer money moral dilemma questions as contributions are often emailed in or suggested in person. They are intended to be enjoyed as a point of debate and discussed at face value.

    100% you should ask for a contribution.
    The fact its costing you overheads and you have to take your boss/colleague in your car after a full day in the office for the journey home (unless you don't mind him being there) he should be very gratefull and contribute its just wrong that he hasn't.
    I personally would like after work to travel home listening to my music being my self.. unwinding or making a call to family (hands-free of course) not worrying what my boss would think or act in a certain way in front of him for the duration of the journey...hope you solve this soon
