Topic Wiki

This thread is to discuss whether people feel that something is unethical, not to find out what the law*/T&C says.

Any Halachic questions should be posted here.

*According to CountValentine this includes religion, but unfortunately for him, the general consensus is that religion will always be entwined in this thread.

*Hint* It's most likely not ethical.

Wrong forum for that!  US Mint, 3BM, Venmo, etc., etc., etc., etc.
I hope you don't really believe that it's ok to steal. I doubt anyone on the forums would be ok with that

And when your child turns 12, I'm sure you pay the adult admission at the Zoo on Chol Ha'moed when Child admission is "Under 12" and adult admission is "12 and over"

Just pointing out the hypocrisy that this may be the wrong forum to ask a question as to whether something is 100% "ethical"

I actually do and am offended at the suggestion that I don't

As I don't know you at all, you really shouldn't get offended.  I would just venture to guess that a disproportionate % of the participants on this forum would err on the side of paying the child rate -- at least while it is reasonably close to the cut-off birthday.

Not at that stage yet, but does it also depend if your child is within ear shot?  Would you be throwing away a $200,000 private school education by lying in front of them for a $5 discount?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Absolutely...it's something I say to friends all the time.  We spend almost $20K per year per child on Yeshiva tuition (I know, I live in a high-rent district) to teach them morals, midot, among other things (Torah, etc.) -- and then there are those that throw all the moral lessons out the door when they tell their kids "If anyone asks, tell them you are 11"

We spend $10,000 on tuition and throw it out the window for a $10 discount for child fare (when we teach them that all they learn is BS)
Seems we haven't fixed the Echo bug on DDF.
