Typically I'd say, be honest and take it back, but walmart is a silly-giant chain, and I'm sure their markups will cover it.
Besides, it's not your fault. It's theirs. (bank error in your favor, collect headphones)
How do they sound?
And I imagine you'll get the hairy eyeball if you try and return them anyway. Hell, most of Wal-mart's theft is internal.
I have done that before and went back in to pay for the item, I'm lame sometimes.
IF it was just you at a self check out i would go back and say looked i messed up. but since you actually had a cashier. Their bad.
Just keep them, not your fault and big stores like that have a budget on lost/stolen items anyways so its not that big of a deal to them.
Keep them. I have no love for people that can't/ wont do there jobs right, expecaly when there job is so simple.
I'm sure you'd get the biggest WTF? from WM if you tried to um, return and pay...lol
So are they worth it? are they the sweetness?
I say keep 'em, too. Not your fault.
They don't sound bad - not quite as good as the headphones straight through the soundcard, but these will certainly do
And I guess you can't beat the price huh
DC what is it that you got out with and then went back to pay for?
It's Wally's fault and the product is not as great as you thought they would be.
Ya man keep'em
Like the others said, keep 'em.
Well thanks guys - I don't feel like a thief anymore
It feels goooood to listen to stuff through headphones again
I'm listenin to The Time at the moment, haha. Go 80s, go!
I'm probably about as self-righteous as anyone about that stuff, but if I don't notice until I've left the store, I don't go back.
Stores pay their employees poorly, knowing it's likely to translate into poor customer service for me. And I accept it. When that business decision affects them in turn through poor attention to detail, that's the way the cookie crumbles.
Also, would the cashier or any other employee of the store call you if they realized that they double-billed you for an item? Of course not.
They created the system and they control it. When it fails and it benefits you, it's on them. I think you're in the ethical clear.
smothered in your earwax.
Ahhh torn on this issue. Can't be self righteous, as I am far from perfect. The right thing to do would be to take them back. They have a budget for lost/stolen items, yes, but that doesn't make it right to keep them. However, like you said, not your fault, and because I am sick of Wal-Mart's customer service, and the way you are treated like an annoyance whenever you ask for help their, I say screw it.
Keep 'em. Had it been Target or Best Buy, I would have taken it back. But Wal-Mart could give a crap about their consumers, and it shows in the attitudes of their employees.
One time it was a transformer, I believe one of the Autobot brothers from RID, it was under one of my kid's jackets in the cart and I didn't realize it had not been scanned until I was putting the kids' coats on and we were getting ready to go out the main door.
Another time it was some fisher price kid's toy thing that my third son was holding and it never got put on the belt, when I walked back in with it the greeter offered to put a sticker on it!
