So I put in 85 cents, pressed the letter and number combination and out came the bag of goodness. But a second later, another bag fell to the bottom of the machine. That left me with two bags of pretzels for the price of one!
It was a very thrilling moment for me, since normally I am on the other side of the scenario where the bag gets stuck and the food stays safely behind that glass wall. But this time, I got two! Yea!
Then Jewish guilt came down on me and I thought, hmm – I only paid for one, shouldn’t I return the other one somehow? So like any social geek, I came to Twitter to see what other’s would do and I tweeted it:
Ethics Q: You buy 1 bag of pretzels from candy machine, 2 come out, what do you do?
The responses I got were pretty diverse, some said call the company to return it. Another said drop more money in the machine to make up for it. But the best answer, in my opinion was:
@rustybrick From a candy machine? You find me someone that’s going to call the number on the machine to report that..
So yea, what would you do? Please take my quick poll:
Please have your friends take the poll. The bag is still sitting on my desk.
