Honesty is the best policy…

My Dad would say to me, “Honesty and integrity are so key to who you are.  Whatever you do, it will eventually be found out.” His teaching reminds me of this story. One day, four high school students decided to cut their morning classes. After lunch, they reported to their teacher that their car had a flat tire. The teacher simply smiled and said, “Well, you missed the test this morning, so take your seats and get out your notebooks.”

Still smiling, she waited for them to settle down. Then she said, “First question. Which tire was flat?”
