“Honesty is the rarest wealth anyone can possess, and yet all the honesty in the world ain’t lawful tender for a loaf of bread.” – Josh Billings
The midweek challenge this week from partner Susan and myself is HONESTY.
This week we ask you to tell us if you feel that honesty is based on a sliding scale or is it a solid notion not based on situational influences.
This week I drove a friend to the eye clinic for an examination. I sat in my car and waited patiently while she kept her monthly treatment.
I noticed over a short period of time that a number of patients to the clinic were forgetting to pay for their parking pass. There were a number of signs on the lot informing visitors that they needed to pay for the right to park.
Many drivers did not even bother to purchase their pass but took the risk that parking lot attendants would not ticket their cars.
Perhaps these folks felt that the ticket dispensing machine was more akin to the one arm bandit slot machines prevalent in gambling casinos.
It could have been that they were suffering from a blurred vision problem: they were there to consult with their vision specialist. I am merely hazarding a guess on that one.
Give us your take on this issue. Is honesty based on a sliding scale or based on something else.
As always, our challenge is flexible, please interpret the challenge to suit you – using Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme.
