This week's article, from the philosophy magazine Hohe Luft, is a fictional dialogue between two people who are discussing the moral implications of letting an old lady go before you while queueing at a supermarket checkout. It's a great source of expressions for ethical arguments, but also for mundane everyday sentences related to supermarkets and queueing.
