Is taking a cherry tomato off the salad bar "stealing"?

do  they allow sampling from it? they did at my store, and customers ate their fill, which used to aggrivate me.

but it depends on if sampling is allowed or not. weather it,s a employee or not, is not a factor to me.

Hmmm....a question in ethics. I think it really depends on if you're management or loss prevention, where the answer, of course, would be YES!!

But in general, I think it's a better idea if you just take the higher road and leaver dat 'mater there~

Well...

so here is my take on the question I posed to you all.  i think that we all agree that taking a bag of chips and eating them w/o paying for it is obviously stealing.  the person knows that what he is doing is just plain flat-out wrong.  an occasional 'nibble' from the salad bar is a very gray area. is it wrong to the company?  well yea i guess it is. is it truly a question of deep moral flaw?  i honestly do not think so.  we as people have unfortunately easy temptations.  for some of us it might be, oh i don't know, having sex with another mate when you are married. to societal standards i guess that is wrong.  taking a little bit of stuff probably can create continual 'dishonesty' and i suppose the tumbleweeds get bigger as you continue to do so.

hell i dont know what the hell i mean anymore LOL....

Naw, I understand exactly what you're saying.....I work in the produce dept., and I daily pitch out 80--100lbs of 'bad' veggies and fruits. And YES, we all graze on some of this stuff that is only bad because its date has come up. Technically, this is wrong; but none of us sweat the ethics of it, lol~~

 I consider that to be quality control.  How else are you suppose to know what to say to a customer when they ask if the strawberries are any good?
