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 not just about the choices people make, but the thought process they go through to arrive at their decisions.

What Do You Think? Submitted for Your Consideration & Conversation

It’s opening day at your local baseball stadium. You’re out to cheer for your team and enjoy the day with a group of friends.

In the Third Inning, a “tipsy” person behind you spills a drink that splashes your feet a little. He apologizes over and over, and you decide to let it go. You and your group stay in your seats and continue enjoying the game.

Another few innings go by. The man behind you has several additional drinks and is more than a little inebriated. One of your team’s players hits a grand slam and in his excitement the man jumps up and dumps an entire beer on one of your friends.

Do you think you would just get up and leave with your friends? If the one who is soaking wet with beer started an argument, do you think you should intercede or let them argue? At what point would you decide to involve someone from the ball field security?

Do you feel you could all enjoy the game after this incident, or would it ruin your outing?
