Depends on the store, the cashier and the amount.

Large corporations are typically owned by shareholders for example the general public. That's who you're stealing from. You keep on justifying it any way that let's you sleep at night but that's the truth.

Good luck with your attitude of entitlement. I bet it will get you far in life.

not really stealing when they just give it to you. Its like that chance card in monopoly: "bank error in your favour, collect 45 dollars"

They didn't give it to you. Did they specifically say "Here take this, it's free" ?

You know you're supposed to pay for it. You took advantage of them.

they're failure to do their job properly is telling me yes its free. Its not their money, and that they will learn quickly. I know, I've been a cashier before, got to be within $5 till amount as recipts. But if you can't take the time to do your job and do simple math, then hey, I'm quite happy when its in my favour.

as for that time at mcd, they have ommitted or got my order wrong so many times over the years that finally their incompetance worked in my favour.

as wetcoaster said, its legal and not "stealing" as you say, its just up to my morals. And they are pretty happy when it goes my way once in a while

Here's hoping you run a business someday. Though I have a feeling management isn't quite what you're cut out for.

As for your 2nd point. If that's the case why would you keep going back there? Surely there are other establishments that will give your total daily caloric intake in one serving?

Your morals appear to be MIA.
