Moral conundrum... ???

Say you needed 6 of something, but could only afford 5. So you only bought and paid for 5, but when they delivered it... they delivered 6. Through no misconseption of your own you got the extra one.... for free.

Do you consider this?
A store error that should be corrected. Either by paying for or having them pick up the extra one.
A gift from the shopping gods that should be accepted without question.

  • Keep it!!! You need it. You want it. It's not hurting the company or anyone else. Literally no harm done. Just the fact that you have a concious over it renders you worthy.

  • I'd call customer service. More likely than not, unless it's an expensive item, they will simply tell you to keep it. Then you did the right thing and got something free.

  • I would return it to the store. Just because it was delivered doesn't make it right.

  • Yeah, I'd call and tell them. No question in my mind that's the RIGHT thing to do, whether or not its the popular thing.

  • I would call. It's very likely they will say, "keep it"

  • yeah I have a huge conscious, though some days I don't, so if you catch me on the right day I'd keep it, but otherwise I'd call and tell them and see what they say
