CNN asked a list of moral dilemmas.
1. If something at a yard sale is far more valuable than the posted price, do I have to let the seller know?
2. Is it considered stealing to take pens from a bank? What about extra napkins from a fast-food restaurant?
3. If a charity sends me free address labels and I don't make a contribution, is it OK to use them?
4. Is it unfair to move into better (open) seats at a sporting event or a concert?
5. My boss gave me credit for a project on which a colleague did most of the work. Should i accept the praise?
6. Is it OK to fantasize about someone else when I'm with my partner?
7. Am I obligated to lend money to friends and family?
8. If someone tells an offensive joke, is it my responsibility to speak up about it?
9. Is it ever OK to sneak a peek at your child's e-mail?
10. My boss asked me to cover for him on his expense report by saying I was at a meal when I wasn't. Should I do it?
Have you ever had a moral dilemma like one of these? How did you respond?
I don't think these are a big deal...maybe if you knew someone who robbed a bank or abuses their kids, and having the dilemma of following the law or keeping friends then I could see a bigger problem... But if there is an open seat at a game which is in a better place than yours, go for it!
