Situation 1: This situation showcases how Mike decides to ignore his moral reasoning or his conscious of right or wrong. He realises that perhaps the woman might need help as he describes her as dishevelled. This is his conscious telling him that it is not right for a person in general to be begging for money on the side of the street, that perhaps she needs money to buy food or shelter from the cold. Mike tries to dismiss his reasoning for not donating money by saying "she would probably use it to buy drugs". In reality he does not know her story, maybe she lost her job, got evicted from her house or was treated unjustly. Mike decided that inaction was the best response to the beggar. He used trivialisation, that no one else was donating so he decided not to, to justify why he did not donate.
Mike is driving to school on Mcleod trail headed North.
He notices traffic up ahead by the turnoff for Glenmore trail
Mike glances to the right and notices a dishevelled woman, standing on the side of the street holding a sign:
Bet you 1$ you will drive by
She probably will use the money to buy drugs, if I gave her a dollar. Better lock the doors *Click*
The traffic starts to move and Mike inches forwards
Mike guilty avoids the gaze of the women as he follows the line up of cars before him, none giving anything to the women.
