What exactly did they do to break the law?

Exactly what a low moral person would say.

Some people are still honest in this world.


It's a dying breed.

That's what the call the false equivalency fallacy.

Walmart doesn't.

Employees do from government sources.

If the machine gave back more than it should have, I would have taken it as a gift.
You are most likely lying if say you wouldn't do the same.

There is far more to it than that.

I know that most atm machines have cartridges of bills loaded into them. The machine knows that a cartridge is supposed to be $20's but if a human put $100's in the cartridge the machine doesn't know the difference.


Whats to prevent the 'intentional error' on the part of said human, think they thought of this, already?



Well in banking the person loading the machines has to account for the money they move from the vault to the atm machine. Everything is supposed to balance.

I hate walmart as much as anyone, and I rarely(once a year) go there.

However, it's still wrong and the right thing to do would be to inform someone and get my proper amount due.

I realize that's is a rare opinion, and that most can't fathom having that level of principal. Even when it's in favor of something/one so undeserving of that "respect".

At the end of the day though, it's about me, knowing I'M IN THE RIGHT and that I've done the right thing. Knowing that I can't be labeled a hypocrite or ever be knocked down due to saying one thing and doing another.


I probably wouldn't have even noticed I was given a $20 bill since I always seem to be in a hurry. Later on, I would be scratching my head trying to figure out where my windfall came from, lol.

(That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

Don't you think Walmart had earned the dislike they get?


I honestly don't care.

I don't work for them.

I rarely shop from them.

I'm busy doing other things, and taking care of my own business to bother with it.

Very true but you also can't blame Wal-Mart for minimum wage jobs.

Sounds like you are just trying to justify it to yourself. "Everyone would do it, if you say you wouldn't you're lying."

I wouldn't, I'm not lying. I've gotten too much back, and gave it back. I've been UNDERCHARGED for things, and gone back to pay for it.

The only lying going on here is the people lying to themselves saying there's nothing wrong with taking something that is not yours "because".

Pay now, or pay later... I know it will go over a lot of heads..... primarily the ones who thought it a bounty.

Ok so walmart does not pay its employees enough even for basic food and shelter.

The employees go to goverment welfare to #ING SURVIVE AND DONT STARVE TO DEATH.

And you then have the audacity to blame the empoyees for that?


You actually think its wrong and audacious that a person DOESNT WANT TO GOD DAM #ING STARVE TO DEATH ON THE STREET?


Survival is a basic human instinct. Of course empoyees are going to take goverment mo ey if that prevents them from stariving and being homeless.



And its wrong for companies to exploit that situation.

Only out of petty jealously.

Hatred one of the most wasted human emotions there is.

Can you blame them for using snap and medicare as a corner stone in their business model so employees can work there. This is corp welfare and is stealing from the tax payer.
