I made sure to ask for a dollar's worth of change because I had to take the bus home. The lady gave my change and then a dollars worth in quarters. Being the quick head math whiz that I am, I told her she gave me an extra dollar and gave it back. The person behind me called me nice and said I was honest. The two guys behind her called me an idiot who wasn't going to get anywhere in this world.

I have my own stance on this but as many many people have complained to me, I'm an idealist and can't expect everyone else to be.

The question:

Is it really so ridiculous to try and play an honest role in modern society?

Looking back at it, I honestly feel different towards the subject at hand.

Honesty is generally the best policy, unless it gets you into trouble. There's an extreme and it's known as bluntness. I tend to be a pretty blunt person generally speaking.

Though sometimes lying is a necessary evil. Not huge lies, just ones which will avoid unnecessary conflict or advance you to the place you need to be.

I say a 50/50 split is the best way forward.
