WHEN BEING GRACIOUS IS UNETHICAL


Sometimes people resent it when another is gracious, and sometimes graciousness can be unfair.


My brother-in-law Joel, worked hard to turn paper in on time. The teacher had said she would not extend the deadline. So he pulled an all-nighter and got it done, only to have the teacher extend the deadline. Joel answered that it was unfair, and he persuaded her to give the students who did turn in their papers on time "extra credit."


Yet that teacher would not have been wrong to give one student more time because he had a death in the family or some other truly extenuating circumstance, besides just a dose of procrastination.
