Hypothetical Question

Okay I have a hypothetical question for everyone!

Lets say that you are a pharmacist, and you are making oh...around $50,000-$80,000 a year.

All of that money, life is grand!

Close your eyes and enjoy the possibilities. A luxury car, A grand home, just about everything you need and want. All of a sudden you go to work and you, pop some pills in your mouth, that you haven't paid for. Then you go to another department with a box and start taking things, and put these things inside of a box and try to leave without paying for them as well. You get caught and arrested because of your cheapskate tendencies.

My question is this, "What the Hell YOU are DOING stealing from your job if you make $50,000-$80,000 a year?

What is going through people's brains nowadays?

That last Question didn't count!

addiction does a lot to a person. And something someone has always told me, no matter how much money you have, you always need more. You always end up spending more the more you make.

Some people have a strong drive to try to get away with something. When the drive is too strong, one finds it too difficult to be able factor in the risks at the reality level (see: sex, unprotected).

This is one explanation

Well, I say we're all basically evil. We have to work--and work hard--to do good, while being corrupt just comes naturally. A pharmacist steals drugs because that's the temptation he faces all day, everyday.

But, that said, we all have brains and a conscience. There's no excuse for not using them.

I think the problem you are having reconiling his activity is that you are trying to equate eithics with salary level.

A person is honest whether they make $20,000 a year or $1,000,000 a year. Likewise, a good salary won't make a dishonest person ethical.
Have a great weekend!
