"We must be aware of what we choose, if not we will choose to fail."
The other day I was sitting in class during a break we had a guy came in hoarding 4 candy bars and probably like 100 cookies.
"What the heck?" I said.
"Go check it out. The vending machine is broken outside and it gives you 3 of everything!"
So I go out there and sure enough, I press D7 for a Kit-Kat...I get 3 Kit Kat. I press B3 for a pink cookie, I get 3 pink cookies. I couldn't contain my excitement! It was awesome!
After all, it's the machine's fault it's broken. Not mine. I shouldn't have to be punished for my choosing to get a candy bar and I get 6. It's the machine's fault, not mine.
I called KacyAnn after class to tell her about my new found treasure. As I was telling her, I realized that what I had done wasn't the best choice.
I justified, "Yeah but I gave most of the candy away to fellow classmates. I'm like Robin Hood. I take from the rich and give to the poor. College students are as poor as they come."
My choice effected other people.
Be aware of yourself, what you are doing, how you are speaking.
Oh...and broken vending machines.
