This evening, my wife came home from Safeway after a quick stop, and upon unpacking the groceries, she was surprised to find a carton of chocolate-covered mint Oreo cookies. But she didn't remember paying for them, and our guess is that they probably were purchased by the shopper who had been ahead of her in line, but somehow put in her bag by one of the store clerks. Looking at the receipt confirms she wasn't charged.
So - the question is, should we return the box to the store? Do the cookies belong to us? Did she inadvertently shoplift without knowing? Should I feel guilty that I already ate one?
