A matter of principles

When Robbie returned from school, his grandad asked, "What did they teach you in school today?"

"I don't know" replied Robbie, "but the teacher kept talking about principles. I didn't understand one word."

Grandad said, "That's not difficult to understand. I will tell you what it is. Say, I buy stuff at the supermarket, and the cashier gives me more change by mistake, my predicament would be whether to keep it
for myself or follow my principles and give it to Grandma."
