Questionable work behavior

After my post about being annoyed at hearing nail clipping at work, here is a topic suggestion:

What have you seen or heard at work or any other environment that made you raise your eyebrows?

What have you done yourself that might raise some eyebrows, and why?


Is it a sin, crime, or both?

by Swim

I remember making a joke to a college friend about something we didn’t like, “UGH, that’s a sin AND a crime!” We laughed, and it became a recurring comment. DH and I will sometimes make that comment as a joke, but other times we’ll use it to see where we stand on other value litmus tests. Jaywalking at an empty intersection? Crime but no sin. Nasty gossip? Sin but no crime.

It has been interesting to use it as a discussion point with the kids when having serious conversations that revolve around values.
