Interesting topic. I think the grain issue above is defintely theft. If they are assuming you are working on the "honor system" and you are knowingly deceiving them, that is theft. I will have to think in this one a bit. I'm sure i can come up with an ethical dilemna.

I did it once (ok, I did it twice) and felt moderately bad about it. Ethical? Or just skimming profit off a company that makes enough and keeps money in our relatively tight pockets?
That's straight up theft.

I'll refrain from mentioning kegs...

About 20 years ago I did the price tag switch. I removed the sticker off a cheap bottle of wine and placed it on an expensive bottle of scotch. Did it bug me back then? Not to much. Do I remember it now 20 years later? Yes! Wish I wouldn't have done that. Really do. People change over the years. Being YD and full of C, and naive we make mistakes. Learning from them is what makes us old and wise.

I'd save the person of course, but for selfish reasons. My job would consider it Line of Duty if anything happened to me as long as I was attempting to save a person, the dog, not so much.

Is it still Line of Duty if there was no person and you drowned trying to save the pooch?

For the record, i wasn't judging the grain comment i know i've done the same thing at some point. Young and stupid.

So heres one for you. A friends wife is heavily involved in the PTA. She stores a lot of the things at her house, i.e. plastic cups, plastic ware, plates, etc. once the functions are complete and there are remaining items, she sometimes uses them. The PTA paid for the items for a specific function and these are the leftovers. Ethical or unethical?

I'd save my dog because in this day and age you might still get sued for rescuing the stranger

Ethical. She provided free storage so the PTA didn't pay for that. What little is left and not needed she can use.

I'm sure my union would try, but I don't think so. Legally, pets are property.
