1. Your son’s Fifth Grade teacher is proud to be gay. He espouses gay family values in class. Do you protest to the principal?
Not at all.
2. As a joke, a co-worker sends anonymous love letters to another co-worker who takes them seriously. Everyone is enjoying the prank. Do you expose it?
I would take the person aside and tell them. I would try to handle it with sensitivity so that they wouldn’t feel humiliated.
3. Due to a mix-up the tax department fines you $500 for tax evasion. You’re completely innocent but it’ll cost $5000 to fight in court. Do you fight on principle?
It would depend on my financial situation at the time. Since it is quite hard to find $5000 lying around, I would most likely choose to pay the $500 just to get it out of the way.
