Your Week Ahead: Some people are sticklers for the letter of the law. They will not allow so much as the tiniest transgression. Others are happier to be spontaneous. In between these two extremes lie most of the rest of the human race. If put on the spot, we normally feel obliged to say whatever we feel is 'the right thing to say'. If our attention is not drawn to a particular matter, we are happy to turn a blind eye to it. The official answer to this week's big question probably has to be 'no'. But you could try not asking for permission in the first place.
