Dan, I have had a similar experience at HD and Lowes, I was told that sometimes the system is loaded with a price and the item is tagged higher on the floor. The employee has to go with the computer , so I think you tried to do the right thing and good on you.

This happened to me a Lowes a few years ago. I went to buy a dozen large retaining wall blocks. The price in the system was 50% less than what they had marked on the floor. Lowes said they were required to honor the price. I got greedy and bought 2 pallets.

I thought I got a great deal until they showed up. Do you have any idea how many retaining walls you have to build to get rid of 512 large retaining wall blocks? I built walls around every tree, every garden, and anywhere else I could put them. I still have a small pile left. I'll never get rid of them all.

Unethical? Probably, but Karma took care of me.

Ok back on task . Here's a good one. Is putting together a costume that makes it look as if no one is driving a car, and then ordering drive-through at McDonalds and filming the workers' reactions good, clean, harmless fun... or is it cruelly messing with underpaid workers who just want to finish their hard day of work and go home?

I don't think there is going to be any long term effects, as I thought they took it well, and it was funny

I don't think that there is anything ethically wrong but it is funny as hell.

Ok, I got one. I don't think there are any laws against doing this, so, is it unethical to knowingly sell homebrew kit to people under 21?

I think it would be, yeah, especially if you know they are using it without the knowledge of their parents. If you are selling to Yooper's kid, I say whatevs.
