I had a decision to make. There was a benefit I could claim if I broke the rules and lied. So obviously I couldn't claim the benefit. So I asked the people in charge of the benefit if we could have the benefit because we had worked hard but didn't technically qualify for the benefit. Rather than break the rule, we asked the rule makers if they could make an exception. We'll see how that goes. It did actually hurt my pride to ask, but at least my integrity is intact today.
