Wow, this is an interesting social dilemma. I'm curious if this has ever happened to you. It has happened to me.
Dear Jaime. My name is Patty and I think I have an interesting social dilemma for you. I work with a guy who did something at the store and I couldn't believe it. He thinks what he did was fine. I said we had to come to you!! Jack is my coworker. This past weekend he was at Target looking to buy a TV. He didn't ask anyone for help and just grabbed a TV box that was part of a display on the floor. He figured he could carry it himself with no problem. Except he couldn't and he dropped it. He said he heard something break in the box, so he put it back where he found it and walked out. I told him he should have said something, and he said, people do that stuff all the time. It's no big deal. Don't you think he should have let someone know what happened? He thinks it's acceptable behavior. What do you think? Let's teach Jack a lesson about manners. Thank you so much Jaime, I really appreciate it. You rock! - Patty
Wow, well, I don't think that's okay. It's a big ticket item. I mean chances are someone will buy it, find it broken and have to return in. I admit that once I picked up one of those glass aroma wax diffusers and it broke, but I told a person at Walmart who told me not to worry about it. I would never have just left it there. What do you think? If you accidentally break something in a store, should you tell someone?
