Scenario A business is run by rick & joe (brothers). They are 50/50 partners. Their business is 1 store in a 45 advertising co-op that advertises on TV, radio, and print. As a thank you for advertising on TV, the TV stations give the co-op 2 round trips to Hong Kong and 1 round trip to Australia. So in fairness, the co-op decides to play a game similar to "the lottery" to give these trips to 3 different members of the co-op. Rick and Joe's franchise wins 1 of the trips to Hong Kong. Joe finds out that the trip is during a vacation that he already planned to take with his wife, so he informs Rick that Rick should take it with his own wife. A couple of days later, Joe's wife says "shouldn't you get monetary compensation for the trip since you're 50/50 partners"? Joe agrees and asks Rick if that's ok with him. Rick says "yes that's ok". Nobody has any idea of what the trip is worth, so Joe asks the TV station. The trip is worth $9,000 (includes airfare, expensive hotel, food, activities). So figuring that it was worth that amount, Joe takes a draw out of the business for $4,500, because that would be 50% of $9,000. Rick goes on the trip to Hong Kong and has a great time. A month passes, Rick asks Joe how much he took in compensation for the trip. Joe tells Rick $4,500. Rick feels his heart drop, "$4,500?" he asks... Joe replies, the trip was worth $9,000. "Why not just take $9,000", Rick says sarcastically. Joe says "you didn't have a problem with it when I discussed this with you before". Rick now feels like Joe has stolen $4,500 from his hard earned money because he would rather have not taken the trip if Joe was going to take that much compensation. So now Rick wants $4,500 in compensation because, in his eyes, the trip is worthless and he'd rather have the money. Is it fair for Rick to take the $9000 trip and Joe to have $4500 in monetary compensation in this situation? or unfair? explain your reasoning.
