    Does anyone else have any stories on the topic?


    No stories come to mind at the moment, but using creativity is the right thing to do. I heard (not sure where, but its probably a famous thing) the amount a person works to come up with a reasonable excuse, malachim will work in his favor when he does an aveirah.

    This is a great idea for a thread!

    There is no benefit to making up stories unless you are a professional novel writer. Most often what you are assuming is untrue and may cause lashon hora. Most of the time the subject matter of whatever you are dreaming up is none of your business in the first place. It is nobody else’s concern why your neighbors are coming out of the gym – maybe they are the landlords and are collecting the rent, maybe they were asking directions to get somewhere, maybe they are painters and are redecorating the place – maybe, maybe, maybe. You should concern yourself about your own studies, morals and ethics. Don’t make things up and don’t assume. There is a very old expression : “Never assume anything – it makes an ‘ass’ out of ‘u’ and ‘me’.”


    due to my son’s medical condition, he may not eat most healthy foods such as fruit. we were in the grocery store recently and he was begging for watermelon. another shopper looked at me as though i was the worst and craziest mother when she heard me tell him, “elishama, you can not have watermelon. would you like a cookie instead?” yes, be dan l’chaf zchus!!!!
