I receive products on a regular basis to review. I do not have to
return these products.
Last Friday I received a 2000 watt portable generator. I have not even
opened the box. Today I come home, and there is yet another, same kind
and brand of generator sitting on my doorstep. Surely someone in
shipping messed up. I now have 2, but once I review a product, I'm not
permitted to review the exact same product.

I'm not required to send it back. I just feel guilty because if I do

in another sense, if I don't say anything, I just don't feel right about it.
Call them and tell them, they will either have it shipped
back(cost) or just tell you to keep it.
No one is going to get in trouble....it's the computers
fault : ) Then, you will have done the right thing and put
the ball in their court.

There are at least a couple guys here that write well
and are growing up to be finicky old farts.
Report the extra to whoever you're working for.
Would keeping the second one be considered theft? Could
the possible oversight be a test of your honesty?
You gotta face the man in the mirror.

Story time: I've been playing a game at the corner store here with a shiny
penny. I put it in a place where it would be noticed and told the workers
there that if anyone who does not know about the game turned it in they
would get a free oatmeal raisin cookie on me. A couple of months ago
I was in line at the counter and noticed that it was missing, again. I
mentioned it to the gal at the register and asked if it was turned in.
me was a young boy with his sister and he heard me and said he has it.
The register gal asked him what he was going to do with it, keep it or
turn it in. He was quiet for a bit and I acted uninterested and distracted.
Then, he put it on the counter and said it was not his! Whuh! We all
cheered and made a big deal of it and I told him the game and would
he like an oatmeal or chocolate chip cookie! He took the oatmeal and
I put my hand on his shoulder and said "You are an honest boy Noah!
You are the first one in about four years to do the right thing. I'm
proud of you!" He sure had a big smile and I bet he remembers this
for a long time, eih?
A man found a bag that fell out of an armored truck containing north
of $300k about 30 years ago. He turned it in.
It was all over the news.
I never could understand how often armored truck doors popped open,
depositing cash bags on the road.
I guess they fixed the latches, since I've haven't heard about it
happening in the past 20 years or so.
I think that would be an easy one for me -- too *much* money!
I found $20 bill in a "parking lot" (if you can call it that!)
at Alpine Valley many years ago. Where the hell am I going to
turn *that* in? Which Dead Head is going to remember that he
lost it? And, that he lost it *there*??
I found a bag of freshly purchased items (can't remember what
they were) at Woodfield Mall, one day. No one in sight. So,
I brought the bag home, found a charge receipt inside and dug
out the phone book.
Couldn't find the exact name but managed to talk to a man
who was extremely cautious regarding my inquiries (about his
daughter -- though I didn't yet know that). I told him the
story and that I was trying to find the owner to arrange to return
He gave me her number and I called her. She had just walked in the door
and hadn't even realized she'd "lost" some of her purchases! She was
ready to drive back down to the mall to pick them up from me (she lived
pretty far north). That, of course, would be silly.
"If you'll give me your address, I'll mail (ship) them to you..."
A week later, I called her again to verify that they had
arrived. "Yes, but you didn't include your return address
or phone number so I had no way to reinmburse you for the shipping
"Correct. That makes it clear what my intention was, doesn't it?"
I may be an atheist but that doesn't mean I don't believe their
is a Right and a Wrong.
~30 years ago, I had a discussion with a "Holy Roller"
neighbor in which I mentioned my atheism. Mouth agape,
her reply was: "But how do you know what's Right and
Wrong??" -- which left *me* with my mouth agape: if
you need some guy in a fancy robe to tell you Right vs. Wrong,
I'm SURE GLAD you spend a day each week listening to
SOMEONE who gives you that perspective!
By your definition, most of the world has less than half a brain.
People use religion to give them their notion of "morality"; the rules
by which they (in theory, "strive to") live their lives.
The 10 Commandments, the Torah, Koran, etc. all offer rules and
guidelines for their followers as they pass through "earthly life".
They define what's Right and Wrong in the contexts of their
What role do *you* think religion plays in the world? In people's
lives? Just a reason to "get together" on a regular basis??
A chance to play BINGO?
