I guess this could go here or in IMHO, but there may be a factual answer. If the Mods decide it needs to be moved, so be it.
Here’s the scenario.
In a supermarket. Customer A puts a loaf of nice fresh seven-grain bread in his shopping cart. Customer B also wants a loaf of this bread, but Customer A took the last one. So Customer B waits until Customer A turns away to get something else, and grabs the loaf out of Customer A’s cart.
I’m guessing that, officially at least, the loaf still belongs to the store. And i also assume that, if the store manager wanted to get involved, he or she could dictate who would be allowed to buy the loaf. But, if the store decides not to get involved, does Customer A have any grounds for action?
(I know, i know, a loaf of bread rpobably isn’t enough to get worked up over. But hey, Australlia was founded by a bunch of bread-thieves. :))
