Apropos of the thread, but not of any particular post.

There is another side to the axiom about it being easier to get forgiven than
it is to get permission. That other side is that you have to be willing to take
the consequences of your actions, even if you are certain you are right.

Just because you have the certainty of rectitude firmly on your side, others
might not see it that way. With some people, violating a key rule, regulation,
or standing order is a termination offense regardless of the, possible,
mitigating circumstances.

It may be easier to get forgiven, but that doesn't mean you always will be
forgiven. Another axiom comes to mind: "If you aren't willing to do the time,
don't do the crime."
