Is the impact to your conscience more or less than 2340 pesos? If it's less, keep it. If it's more then tell them. They'll probably think you're a bit weird.Shopping at the chino. Half-kilo bag of La Morenita (coffee) is marked 2370 pesos. I get up to the register, and it scans at 1200 pesos. I pay the asked price, drop it in my changito, which I parked by the door, and go back to get another one. Again it scans at 1200 pesos. I say nothing, pay the requested price, and leave.
Do you consider this dishonest, or otherwise ethically questionable?
I confess I had mixed feelings. The upright side of my nature remembers The Golden Rule. But the "yankee trader" side of me thinks that caveat emptor cuts both ways. If it was a corporate chain, I wouldn't give it a second thought. But this is a small business. My conscience is a bit troubled by what I did. What do you think?
I would still be dancing a jig.Is the impact to your conscience more or less than 2340 pesos? If it's less, keep it. If it's more then tell them. They'll probably think you're a bit weird.
I ordered an Air Con unit on Amazon here in the UK years ago. It arrived, my wife didn't like it, asked me to send it back. I initiated the return, then a heat wave hit (whilst I was away on business for a few days) came back and it was fully installed.
I called Amazon, asked them if I could keep it. They told me they'd received the unit and didn't know what I was talking about. I said I still had it. We had a debate. They basically told me they had no way of sorting it out. We have the aircon unit for free and I still feel guilty about it.
