ETHICAL QUESTION #1: The Twinkie Dilemma
Wow--this one goes way back to my childhood:
When I was in third grade, a classmate of mine begged me for my Twinkie dessert. She promised that she would replace it the next day with either a Twinkie or something comparable. The next day she handed me a mini-bran muffin and said we were 'even'. I refused the bran muffin and said that she still owed me a Twinkie or at least something sweet that would constitute a (third grade) dessert. After all, I've seen her with pretty tasty looking desserts! She refused, and that pretty much ended our friendship.
I feel like she pulled one over on me. Was I right in getting upset at the bran muffin offering? Was she wrong in suggesting that a bran muffin is comparable to a Twinkie??
