Social Dilemma - Is It Okay to Steal Sugar or Equal Packets?

posted by Jaime Roberts - 

This is an interesting dilemma between a husband and wife.  I'm interested to hear what you think.  I know what I think.

Hi Jaime.  My wife and I continue to argue about this.  In fact, we argued as recently as this past weekend.  Here's the deal.  I use Equal in my coffee and my wife uses sugar.  Now I don't mind paying for sugar because we use it for other reasons too.  But I HATE paying for Equal.  I only use one or two packets a day at home depending on whether I have one or two cups of coffee there a day.  So I don't pay for it anymore.  One day a week I stop and buy my morning coffee (don't want to say the name because they might be looking for me then).  While I'm there, I grab a handful of Equal packets.  I then use those packets the rest of the week, making my coffee at home.  I do it each and every week.  My wife says I'm stealing, I say I'm not.  I have no guilt over it at all.  Maybe I should feel some shame, but I don't.  I doubt the coffee place misses the packets and this way I get my Equal for free.  What do you think?  Do you ever do this?  Do you think it's okay.  I do, my wife doesn't.  Please help us end this ongoing argument.  Thanks Jaime.  Love your social dilemmas...we talk about them all day long!  Have a great day  ~ Kenny

Wow, okay, well, for me, it's stealing.  I may have grabbed a couple of extra packets here and there from time to time, but never on purpose and never with the express reason of stealing them.  So I think it's stealing.  I wouldn't be able to do it and feel okay, but that's me, and I'm a no judgement zone.  So what do you think?  Is Kenny okay taking his Equal packets?  Have you ever done it?
