Honesty is the best policy

Last week, I forgot that I hadn't bought a ticket that included Travelcard and had only bought a return to and from London. Somehow, I managed to get through the Underground ticket barriers at Kings Cross St Pancras. However, as I arrived at Covent Garden, I looked at my ticket and realised to my horror I didn't have the right ticket which meant I was eligible for a £40 fine.

I went up to the person responsible for the ticket barriers and explained my situation apologetically, he smiled and ushered me through the gates with not penalty!

It just shows, if you're in a bind, honesty is the best policy!

What's your best example of when you were in an awkward situation and honesty won the day?
