|A sleeping bag|
This story is a true story with only the name of the person replaced. Everything else is factually accurate.
Max is a young lad, in his early thirties, with a PhD in a highly mathematical discipline. Being very smart, he works in the city earning a descent wage and leading a luxurious lifestyle. There is nothing missing in his life except for the above-mentioned human quality - empathy.
One day Max stayed out late after work having a few drinks, visiting some of the local night clubs and having fun just like a lot of young lads would do. When he realised that the tubes had stopped running and the only way to get home was a cab, he decided to go for an alternative solution.

The sleeping bag was dumped somewhere the next morning and every Max's friend heard of his heroic deed on the previous night. After condemnation by almost everyone, the city boy decided to talk to another tramp and ask for his opinion: "So what do you think, on the scale between 0 and 10, how bad was my behaviour?"…
What do YOU think of Max's act? Was it a fair trade or pure ignorance?
