    Some years ago, I bought a 40" flat panel TV at Sears.

    I picked it up immediately at the customer pickup area. The kid working there didn't seem to know what he was doing, but I got the TV and brought it home.

    A few days later I received notification that my TV was ready to be picked up and I could come in any time and get it.

    I could have easily gone there, picked up another TV set, brought it home, put it up for sale on Craigslist and gotten most of my money back. But I just couldn't do it. I notified them and let them know I'd already picked t up.

    I'm not claiming to be a saint. If I got an extra few bucks in change back at the store, I might keep it, depending on the cashier's attitude. If I found a $20 or $50 bill in the parking lot, I'd probably keep it.

    But something like keeping a TV was just too much.

    I don't know what your mini fridge cost, but if it was much more than a hundred bucks or so, I'd contact them and at least give them the opportunity to send a UPS or FedEx driver out to pick it up. Likely they'll just not take the effort and let you keep it. But you'll be able to feel better about yourself.

    I've often given people money back when they pay me cash, and two bills were stuck together. I found $40 lying in a parking lot on a rainy day. The money was dry, so it couldn't have been there very long. I went into the nearest store and asked if anyone had just come into the store. One woman responded, and I asked if she dropped something. It wasn't her.


    But...on the corporate level, I don't concern myself so much. I've made honest mistakes at Walmart where I ended up walking out with merchandise that I wasn't charged for. I don't lose sleep over it.

    I have had the same thing happen on small ticket items and the seller just told me to keep it
    Because the shipping isn't worth it to them.

    I'm returning it today. I had one demand that it be shipped postal. UPS and FedEx that are not simple drops are a ways away. I have to drop off a local absentee ballot anyway and it's just down the road from the post office. I've kept a twenty myself but I did lather it in sanitizer.

    I would have insisted that they send a driver out to my house to pick it up.

    Good point, they could have had UPS or FedEx just pick it up from his home.

    I live in orchard country away from town. Our post office is small and doesn't use the trucks.

    You should have made this the sellers problem.
    Tell the truth and then let the chips fall where they may.

    No UPS or FedEx pick up available?

    I'm sure you know what's best and easiest for you.

    I'm not sure that would work. We managed a delivery on a smaller truck but with all the torrential rain we got our driveway has washed out on the side and left a channel you could sink a tire into. You can skirt along the side in a smaller vehicle.

    So whether or not you're honest is dependent upon the amount?

    That and other things.

    I admit I'm not a saint.

    But at least I don't physically abuse women.

    I never thought to ask since it's like 3 miles to the post office. I think UPS is maybe like 17 miles out. We live on a private road and as I told Owl, our driveway has issues for big vehicles. It was an excuse to get a carry-out anyway.
