Topic Wiki

This thread is to discuss whether people feel that something is unethical, not to find out what the law*/T&C says.

Any Halachic questions should be posted here.

*According to CountValentine this includes religion, but unfortunately for him, the general consensus is that religion will always be entwined in this thread.

*Hint* If you have to ask, It's most likely not ethical.

I bought a certain type of wd40 from Walmart. Sprayed it once then found out that it's the wrong type. Would you return it?

I at first thought no but now I'm thinking yes because that's exactly what a return policy is for. Second of all it's a tiny amount and even if Walmart decides to restock it the next buyer won't care that it's missing a negligible amount.

I would tell the store what happened, let them decide if it's within their policy..

If you're honest and upfront about it, it's completely ethical.
