Have you ever lied to get a deal? Even just a little white lie or a fib? This is a topic that has always fascinated me. To what lengths is it ok to go in order to get a deal or save some money? What is taboo and what is acceptable? What am I talking about? Why are all my sentences in the form of questions? Sorry, I got carried away there for a second. Let me give an example.
We’re all guilty of thinking about it sometimes. The classic scenario is the employee who can choose to either get paid for overtime worked or bank his or her overtime to be taken as time off later. It launches the classic argument – what is the value of time? Does it have a monetary value? Is time worth more than money? Every person will answer this question differently based on their personality, their priorities and their attitudes.
