work ethics

This is the first story which caught my eye this morning. It sounds like a story out lifted out of the Great Depression when a job interview would have took priority over seeking medical attention. The Toronto Star:

A 16-year-old student went to a job interview instead of the hospital after he and a schoolmate were stabbed yesterday.

Staff at the King West Vets veterinary clinic said the Central Commerce Collegiate student showed up on time for his 1 p.m. co-op placement interview. But when employees noticed blood on his leg, they called police. "He did really well on the interview and we were very proud of him for sticking to the appointment," said veterinarian Kent Ackerman. He wouldn't say if the student will get the job.

Actually, it sounds like something my oldest son would do but he wouldn't have left until he knew he got the job.
