That’s a bit true, he can’t do the comparison ?.
The great responsibility of being good lawful

No, being lawful good would’ve been giving the package to the delivery company. This ws being more neutral or chaotic good really.

That’s definitely lawful neutral, even if this wasn’t lawful good. Returning to re-ship would have absolutely hurt their business, even if technically it gets them the stuff

Wouldn’t lawful good technically be calling the store to ask if he could bring it over as you’re not supposed to transport someone else’s mail without their approval/permission?

The law is clear, actually (at least in the US) – anything that’s delivered to you belongs to you.

Lawful good cares about the spirit of the law/order, lawful neutral cares about the procedurals, lawful evil cares about using the system to self-benefit.

Ethan made the delivery to its intended destination without asking for the recipient to otherwise compensate him. The action absolutely falls within the designation of lawful good.

Why is the store down the block crammed full with customers while they have nobody in theirs?

The same reason the supermarket at fifteen minutes walking is always full but the little fruit shop in my neighborhood is always mostly empty

Bigger advertising budget for name recognition, deceptive “member” perks where prices are raised then lowered for members (think Safeway/Kroger grocery chains. JC Penny, etc.), and being a larger store they can afford the overhead needed for a larger selection.

Sadly, while most people would support small businesses when pressed, they still choose Amazon first when no one is watching.

I think it’s actually the inverse. Most people would support small businesses when they’re not pressed, but unfortunately the way western economies have been set up, most people are perpetually pressed per paycheck

It’s easy to say we want to support the small stores. It’s hard to pay the morals/ethics tax when we’re already struggling to put food on the table

Don’t forget economy of scale. A chain store will have larger volume of sales so they can get by with lower price per unit than small independent stores.

Not to mention that the big chain store can sell at a loss in locations with competition and price gouge customers in areas where there is no competition. Then when the competitor is forced to close jack up the prices because they are the only option.

Amazon has a huge edge that almost seems like it would have been an (additional) antitrust violation 25 years ago: a specific rewards credit card program (I won’t advertise it, but it rhymes with “SpankBlue Rewards”). Link one of those cards on Amazon and your “points” which are 1% – 15% of each purchase (depending on card and promotion at the time) are worth $0.008 each. This is effectively an 0.8% to 12% cash refund on purchases spendable only on Amazon, and I believe it is the best return you can get on them, as the rate on statement credits… Read more »

Punching for science! Let’s test, what punch force and quantity works best? Let’s try at increments of, oh, 10PSI, see what produces optimal happiness factor. Once we’ve determined that, let’s try quantity. All in the name of science, of course!

I’m a firm believer in karma. Ethan did the right thing and Thad was unappreciative about it. It may not happen when we want it to, but Ethan will get rewarded for it and Thad will get punished for it. It never fails. It just requires patience. And when it happens, it is oh-so-sweet!

I believe that well enough in the world of fiction, but sadly irl world keeps showing karma off as a myth

I believe that we belong to the universe and as such we can’t simply trust that karma will magically happen on its own, by magic. Instead, we must act to create our own karma.

Society doesn’t teach you how to be a “good” person. Not even relligion does since priests are as much corrupt as everyone else.

If most people are as corrupt as those Catholic priests, there’s something wrong with the world.

(Also to note, if Tim sees this, maybe try to get the Captcha thing to lay off a bit. I had to go through 20+ of the fading-type Captchas before it gave me a solvable one, and then 5 or 6 of the check-the-box ones.)

What if I don’t know if I’m a robot?
And what’s with all that robot discrimination anyway? That’s like racism but towards robots.
Also… as for captcha… Imagine 2 robots walking the street and seeing a car: “- What is that daddy? – I have no idea”

saying priests are corrupt is like saying pitbulls are dangerous monsters that should be outlawed because all they do is chew people’s faces off. not all of them.

That’s a weird looking mini holder. Never seen one that had s finger loop on it like that. (They’re usually all ‘questionably shaped’ handles. xD )

Why not “return to sender”? That would also have been the “lightside” option, but would still be annoying for Mega Store >:D

Ethan is way too naive with his attempts at goodness, to the extent he’s kinda being a sucker there.

Doing good for someone who would almost certainly not do good back to you (like, we’re not even talking about someone in need, or showing kindness to a stranger, this is an actual rival who has a history of working against you in the past) and who isn’t even willing to change their behaviour after a gesture of good will, is being a sucker and disrespecting oneself
