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

When shopping, you notice a fellow shopper eating a banana as they walk the isles. You end up behind them in the checkout line, and notice that while they pay for the rest of their bananas, they don’t mention to the checkout clerk that they had eaten one too.

Do you think of the banana as “stolen” since it wasn’t purchased? Or do you think that is not the case? Would you say something about the unpaid item, or would you keep silent? Do you think you’d give it a second thought?
