    Situation 1
    A friend of yours buys a new car. They say they bought it because:
    It's a hybrid, low emissions vehicle OR
    The price was a bargain and it gets good gas mileage OR
    A friend of their's has one just like it and they wanted one too.
    Are any of these answers more or less justifiable to you?


    Well, as long as they think their reasons are justifiable then it's their money, it's their life, they can do what they want. Personally, I'd think the 2nd reason is the "best" reason but people are different.

    Situation 2
    You have a friend who smokes indoors with their young children (under 10) living in the house with them. They've smoked since you've known them and are aware about the dangers of smoking, but you feel now that they have kids they should really try to quit. You:
    Say nothing. It's none of your business and they make their own choices.
    Occasionally OR frequently mention to the friend that it's not healthy to smoke and try to find ways to help them quit.
    Avoid coming to their house or being with them with their kids, so you don't have to see them smoking in front of their children.


    Probably the third option. The thing is their choices are negatively affecting other people who have very little say in the matter. I'm not going to do the 2nd because that's to aggressive, so I'd probably just distance myself from the situation.
    Situation 3
    You enjoy burning scented candles and incense because you find them relaxing and soothing. One day, your roommate comes to you and says they're sensitive to fragrances and asks you not to burn them. You can tell your roommate is nervous and looks uncomfortable while asking you. They have not made any previous requests of you and your relationship is good. What do you do?
    I'd stop burning the candles. We're both sharing the space so I wouldn't want to make him uncomfortable. I'd expect the same of him tbh. If I really can't live without the candles we could perhaps work something out where I'd burn them when he isn't around..

    Situation 4
    You're in college and find a scholarship that would greatly relieve your financial burden of paying for school. The only hitch is that you can be no more than a college freshman in order to be eligible. You are midway through the first semester of your sophomore year and know the current semester is not yet reflected on your transcript. The organization giving the scholarship will make a decision before your transcript is updated to reflect your sophomore status. This means only you know you don't technically qualify. Do you send in your application for the scholarship with a transcript reflecting you are still a college freshman? If you get the scholarship do you take the money?


    I'd apply and I'd take the money with no regrets. I really couldn't care less if I screw the system over. It's a dog eat dog world out there. You either eat or get eaten.
    Situation 5
    You're at the grocery store and about to go to through check out. You realize you picked up more items than what you intended. Do you:
    Take all the extra items back to their original spots.
    Put them back on the shelves closest to you.

    That depends on the situation. I could easily do both depending on other factors.
    Situation 6
    You use a public restroom and wash and dry your hands. You throw the paper towel to the trash can but miss. You're in the bathroom alone. Do you:
    Pick it up and trash it
    Leave w/o picking it up

    Depends on the bathroom and my mood. If the bathroom is nice I'd want to leave it nice for others. I'd probably pick it up. If the bathroom is sucky, probably not. If I am angry, sad, tired, etc the chances of me picking it up drop. If I am happy, content, etc the chances increase.

    Situation 1
    A friend of yours buys a new car...


    I'd say, "Nice car", if it's a nice car. Option 2 is the most justifiable, option 3 is the the most honest, and I respect honesty. Option 1 is most likely justification or wayward good intentions, depending on the exact situation.

    Situation 2
    You have a friend who smokes indoors with their young children (under 10) living in the house with them....


    I'd occaionally drop hints, and then sit down and have a talk if they didn't get the hints.

    Situation 3
    You enjoy burning scented candles and incense because you find them relaxing and soothing...


    I'd would stop burning scented candles for the comfort of my roommate.

    Situation 4
    You're in college and find a scholarship that would greatly relieve your financial burden of paying for school...


    Totally apply and take the money.

    Situation 5
    You're at the grocery store and about to go to through check out...


    I'd give the extra items to the checker, they'll put it away later. This is part of their job.

    Situation 6
    You use a public restroom and wash and dry your hands...


    I will pick up the paper towel, if not only just to create the originally desired outcome.

    I think "get to the choppa" is a valid answer to each and all of those different scenarios.
