Being truthful vs being practical
Your mom makes you a ham sandwich for lunch every day of the year. You are sick of eating ham sandwiches and tell your mom to stop making them for you. Your mom refuses to stop, even when you make your own sandwiches to eat. Now, every day, there are ham sandwiches piling up in the fridge, and your mom berates you for being an ungrateful son/daughter when you tell her to stop making ham sandwiches. Do you continue arguing with your mom about the ham sandwiches, or do u furtively take them and throw them in the dumpster in the alley every day, thereby avoiding arguments. Clearly, you are "right" in telling your mom to stop making those ham sandwiches, but she will not stop. Comments? The ham sandwiches are not "free", by the way.
