One evening, late, Deus Ex Machina and I went to the store with the intention of purchasing a particular DVD we wanted. We picked out the DVD, and a couple of other things, and then went to the checkout. The cashier was really nice and chatty. She rang in our purchases and told us the total and gave us our stuff, and we came home.
We talked about how inexpensive the purchase was on the way home, and how we were a little surprised, because it seemed like, maybe, a mistake had been made. When we got home, we looked at the reciept, and sure enough, the DVD hadn't been charged.
By this time, it was our girls' bedtime. It had been a long day, and we were tired.
Since we didn't purposely take the DVD, is it stealing for us to keep it? It wasn't even our mistake. We even tried to pay for it ... in fact thought we had paid for it.
Now, I stop, and ask you, if it were you, if you found that you had brought home a DVD, which you intended to pay for, but found that you hadn't, what would YOU do?
