Favorite ethical dilemma of the moment...

Poll #1003891 checkout dilemma

You're paying for four items at Trader Joe's, but notice your grocery checker has neglected to include one of the most costly. You:

Score some free blueberries, awesome!
9(25.0%)
Debate a second, then figure he's the one who didn't scan your blueberries, so it's not your fault.
10(27.8%)
Tell the checker, 'cause some cops are in line right behind you.
0(0.0%)
Tell the checker, 'cause you're an honest person.
16(44.4%)
Tell the checker, so as not to arouse the wrath of your chosen deity.
1(2.8%)

I didn't even think it was that interesting.

Maybe I will post a much less clear-cut one about another time at TJ's later.

It's a fun poll. With sometimes surprising answers.

Also, lots of folks who never post are answering, which is nice.

Wow, it's still 50/50.

Also, I didn't realize that half of my friends that answered even used LJ anymore.

My favorite italics post is still "Favorite empathy test of the moment..." that made me laugh.

more than half of the respondents claim to be honest people. I don't know if I believe that.

If it's somewhere like Target, I take any break I can get. Living paycheck to paycheck is rough.

If it's a small or local business, or one that I generally like (like larger tack stores), I'm honest.
