With the phrase "quid pro quo" all over the news right now, Morning Edition is looking at the nature of favors. Tell us about a time you needed someone to do you a favor — or a time when you did a favor for someone. ​What kind of expectations did you have? Were those expectations met?

If there's a power dynamic at play — maybe between you and your parents — how does that affect your expectations around giving favors?
