People often fail to recognize the gravity of  choshen mishpat shaalos and figure that they can just wing it. They will call the rabbi to ask if they have a heter to eat on tisha bi’av due to illness, or if they can stay on a bus after shkia when they are stuck in a storm late on a winter Friday, not realizing that the $18 choshen mishpat shaalah may be more serious than the either of the above.

.
This is very true unfortunately, learning כ"מ gives you an appreciation for how careful you have to be with other people's money.

"JS [is] a fetid cesspool of unvarnished linguistic manure, with lots of useless drivel and post-padding." -Moishebatchy

so how about when I ordered a dessert on Uber eats and got a burger. Uber eats asked me if I want to wait for the new dessert and I didn’t want to wait another hour so I said no. They gave me the refund. I left the burger in the fridge and ate it the next day. You’re telling me I have to pay them for it even though I didn’t order that. (This time the mistake was by the delivery guy who probably gave me someone else’s order)
I think in that case you should probably call and ask if you can eat it. If not, yes, you may very well be liable to pay for it. You essentially are storing their burger, now that you were refunded.

But there's no way they could take back perishable food anyway.

Agree no less, will see what they be price a bucket of rice for.
Is the value the same when it is part of the package? What about chicken without rice? How much less would they charge for the chicken if they weren't sending rice with it? Maybe that is the amount you should pay them?

Bottom line is that it makes no sense for you to be making this up as you go along like you are currently doing. Just go AYLOR!
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

You mean no way they could resell it. It belongs to them

Actually, if the store refunded you, and is aware that the burger is in your house and makes no move to pick it up, and in fact every indication is that it is not worth their effort to pick it up so they will never do so(the finder of an aveida has no chiyuv to bring it to the owner, merely to let the owner know where he can claim it) it may very well be Aveida midaas and muttar to eat.

I hear the tzad. But I wouldn't assume that it's muttar. At the very least, ask a shaila

If you think there is a possibility that it is still assur you may as well pick up the phone and call the store and ask if they want it or if you can eat it rather than calling the Rav.

That was actually what I said earlier. I was responding to someone saying it's an aveida midaas

It's just a convenience for lighting from an existing flame. If your stove is on anyway, there's no need.
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

Just be careful about dripping wax all over your stove. It can be a big pain and will smoke up.

Always wondered about thel 11 total. For everything else you  need 10 in the room. But that's for a different thread

They are dayanim. You cant have the defendant as part of the judges.
