Another Day — Another Dilemma
Today I was confronted by another ethical and moral dilemma. It was pouring since 6 am today but I needed to run some errands. Among them was shopping for fruit and vegerables which I like to do at small privately owned stalls.
There was a lot of muddy water swilling about on the roadside. I stepped gingerly, careful not to slip or splash. Lo and behold, there was a whole banana skin on the slippery pavement. A banana skin on the road would entertain the possibility of making someone slip on it any day. In today’s rain it seemed a certainty.
Part of me wanted to pick it up and dispose of it properly so it could not cause a potential accident. But my practical self advised against it. If I picked it up, where would I wash my hands and how would I drive home ?
So I left the smoking gun aka banana skin to its fate but I was not particularly proud of myself.
What would you have done ?
