    You buy two items at the store. When you reach your car, you realize that clerk only rang you up for one of the items. What do you do?

    Honesty is a moral virtue. You should return to the store and pay for the item.

    Hurry up and pay for the other item to keep the clerk from being fired.

    Of course I was being feces ous. I'm so damned honest it's pathetic.
    I walked out of Sam's Club forgetting to pay for some prints I picked up.
    Drove all the way the hell back across town just to pay them thier 59 cents.

    Once a clerk accidently gave me a $50 bill that was in her $5 drawer. When I handed it back she just about shit for the trouble she would have gotten into.

    Found a wallet with $300. Tracked down the owner and handed it back intact.

    Etc. etc....

    And if you had been rung up for more than you received, would you go back? Good luck. I know it happens all the time and the cash register comes up with a plus and the store keeps it. when a cashier comes up with a negative they get the blame.

    For me it all comes down to karma. If I do not rectify the error somewhere down the line I will pay for it.
