Shades of Grey: Pet Peeve

Some situations are viewed in black and white; right and wrong. Yet, many people think situations also have a grey area where solutions are not so easily discerned. This is about the choices people make, and the thought process they go through to arrive at decisions.

Consider: Submitted for Discussion

Your sister stops by to visit one day. You can see as your sister comes in the door that she has a gift bag in her hand. She sets down the gift bag, reaches in, and pulls out a hamster. It is adorable! She hands it to you, and tells you that she thought you would just love it.

You are surprised. You did not plan on getting any more pets, let alone a hamster that requires a cage, water holder, food, cedar chips, and regular care and cleaning!

What do you think you would say to your sister? Do you think you would refuse the “gift”? Or, would you help your sister, and the hamster, by taking it in?
