People Are Reacting To A Viral Tweet Saying "Don't Ask Your Friends To Help You Move," So I'm Curious If You Think It's OK To Ask Friends For These Things

"I'm not risking friends slipping a disc for my sectional couch."

Twitter user @catherynlavery recently tweeted this hot take on asking your friends to help you move:

As an adult, don’t ask your friends to help you move. Hire movers, save a friendship.

And the internet is, well, divided:

@cathrynlavery Shut up lol not everyone can afford movers and if the homies don’t mind helping then what’s the issue. If they didn’t want to help they would say no???

@seskis @cathrynlavery Like They ain’t asking for a kidney lol

However, some people totally agree with the original poster, @cathrynlavery, who followed up their tweet to clarify that "I mean movers for heavy furniture. Having friends for the packing / unpacking can be fun — but I'm not risking friends slipping a disc for my sectional couch. I understand movers can be unaffordable. I've been there. But if you *can* afford it, hire a pro."

@cathrynlavery The amount of resistance to this tweet is unreal. I get you. No one wants a slipped disc for a pizza and case of beer

So I wanna know what you think of this scenario, along with a couple of other questions. Ready? Let's go!
