Man, ethics suck sometimes...

I got a package delivered to me at work... a very nice bottle of Moet & Chandon champagne (Nectar Imperial).

The Swiss Insurance Behemoth I work for has a no gift policy for my division. So, with tears in my eyes, I packed it back in the box, called the sender and told them, with great sadness, of our policy and that I would have to send it back.

Sometimes having ethics is no fun, heh heh

Sorry, we were not meant to be together...

Mein Gott!
That SUCKS! Damn ethics to hell. And...this might be the ONLY situation where I could say that.

Indeed - most of the time I would thrust my chest out and bellow "Oh, Look, the the ethics that I do!" like a complete Pharasee. Today, I merely grumbled and whined...

Did you have to return it full? I mean, ethics is flexible these days.

I would have loved to have sent it back after partial (or, rather, full) evaporation... oh well.

Common, you should have taken it! Sometimes breaking minor rules may be of certain use:)
