to, so64.

oh sorry about that. just my religious point of view, but.

people are taking advantage of policys, (thou shalt not steal)


By your definition, taking ketchup packets at a McDonald's when you're their customer is stealing. McDonald's is offering that ketchup for free instead of charging you even though it costs them money because they want to be nice to their customers and, in turn, have repeat customers.

If you made a burger restaurant and said people can get extra cheese on their burgers for free upon request, then customers who take advantage of your offer are not stealing.

Some retailers offer price guarantees, knowing full well it will cost them money, because they want you to be a customer or repeat customer. It's their policy and nobody is forcing them to do it. They even have the ability to waive that policy at their discretion.

It's not stealing.

no, taking a few ketchup packets is NOT stealing. but it would be like this, I go to a restaurant, buy ONE burger, take hundreds of packets and leave. THAT is taking advantage of 'free' ketchup packets.

that would also be like taking the whole stack of free posters at a walmart.

And what, give you the last word? YOU stop posting here.

It's not stealing. Even you didn't use the word "stealing" in your hundreds of ketchup packet examples because deep down you know it doesn't fit the definition. It's not stealing. It certainly is taking unfair advantage of an offer, and it's morally repugnant. But it's not stealing.

It's not stealing because the price of the packets is part of the food you buy. When the cost of offering the good(s) increases, that cost is passed onto the consumer. It's economics 101.
