That's not a weird reason at all.... Probably a very serious reason.. Unethical behavior such as forging receipts, in a financial role is a strict no-no...

My flight to client usually has empty seats or rows with just 1 person. To get back at the world, instead of booking a seat where I may get my own row, I book next to someone. Just so I can know.

I’m so tired of plagiarism. Students know when they’re cheating, and I can’t stand it when my administrators imply that the student just didn’t know.
