Laws can be evaded and punishment escaped,
but an openly transgressed custom brings sure punishment.

for a visiting stranger to do -
find out what the country's customs are,
and refrain from offending against them.
- Mark Twain

"I'd love to watch your game today, Sandy,"
or the honesty to decline the request gracefully.
Martyrdom doesn't create happiness
for any of the parties involved.
An honest, "No" is preferable to a coerced "Yes."
