Would you call someone you saw stealing an orange?



ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Friday’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma came from Darlene. She saw something and wonders if she did the right thing. Here is his email:

Hi Jaime.

I just got back from shopping and wanted to write to you while it was fresh in my head. I was shopping in a store in Latham. It was in one of the high end stores. Anyway, I was in the produce section and saw a middle aged woman pushing a cart, grabbing a big orange and putting it in her shirt. She looked at me and knew I was seeing her, but she didn’t take it out. In fact, she looked at me even longer and then continued on her way. The bulge was clear in her shirt that she had orange on, but I’m not sure if the cashier would notice. I kept coming and going in my head. Should I tell him something, should I say something to the manager ??? I didn’t know what to do, so I didn’t do anything. Now I feel guilty for it. So I hope you can help me. What would you have done in this situation? Should I be feeling guilty?

Thanks Jaime, looking forward to hearing the answers

It’s hard, I agree. I think I would have done the same as Darlene did. I wouldn’t want to confront the woman, but rendering her for an orange seems overkill. So I probably would have done the same and I would have felt guilty.

What would you have done. Let us know on the NEWS10 Facebook page or let Jaime know on the TRY Facebook page.
