Integrity is defined in the Oxford American Dictionary of Current English as one who has 1 moral uprightness; honesty. 2 wholeness; soundness.
I’ve come across a situation that has me confused. First let me say that I believe you should give credit where credit is due. It’s the right thing to do, would you agree?
My nephew sent me a link about an Altitude training mask (http://www.trainingmask.com) and he told me what it does etc. Apparently they are actually good for training. Anyway, so I mentioned this training mask on a Facebook page and the owner of the facebook page asked what does it do. So I quoted my nephew, because it was him to originally told me about the mask. Now a few days later I see that this fellow posted a picture and a link of him using the mask, but in the same time deleted what I had said about the mask.
So do you get the picture? This guy isn’t giving my nephew through me any credit at all for introducing the mask to him. He’s acting like it’s his very own discovery. Now does that show any integrity?
Your input will be greatly appreciated.
I understand what I’m complaining about is childish, but it makes me mad all the same. As adults aren’t we supposed act like an adult? I try, I really do, but then something like this happens and it’s 7th grade all over again. When will adults act like adults? When will people who claim to have integrity actually live up to what they claim? Just some things I want to know.
