I don't mind the fried chicken at some of the grocery stores around here.

Darwinism. If the store is so inept to hire employees who will not charge cusotmers for what they attempt to buy, you deserved that money more than they did.

Well, any fried chicken is good right out of the fryer. I could anticipating Vons being on par with Albertson's, being decent in flavor in all, but nothing really special. Then again, I guess I'm a bit spoiled because there's a fantastic Chinese poultry deli near my house that makes excellent Cantonese chicken and roast duck. I also head down to Popeye's every now and then.

Hold up....you buy fried chicken from K-Mart :-P And when did K-Mart become a grocery store? :-? There hasn't been one in my area for 8-10 years.

Exactly!!!!!

That's why you say nothing and take home the free chicken karma has rewarded you with! :-B

On a serious not I would alert the clerk, fried chicken isn't worth enough to eat at my conscious.

Super K has a grocery store in it. I haven't seen one in awhile, but I'm sure its there.

Dude...why are you buying chicken from a grocery store? That stuff has been sitting there for 5 days.

If you noticed it and said something it would have made you feel good inside I guess.

I guess it depends on my mood, and perhaps the setting. Here are two examples:

I forgot some small thing in my grocery cart once and found it when I was putting my bags in after having already paid. I immediately told the guy (the asst. manager) who said to "Go ahead." He said I spend enough money at that store that this one thing wouldn't hurt. So there I paid in full.

A few months ago I was doing a mock draft over on the Football side, and I hit Submit on a pick. About two seconds after hitting the button I realized I should have done something else, and since nobody had been in the thread (it was later at night or something) I redid the pick. Of course, there are people who have picks emailed to them so this was discovered, and some people were pretty pissed. At the moment it seemed like a little thing, but it turned out to be pretty big, and people left the mock because of it.

In the grocery store setting, I would never have intentionally walked out without paying for something. In the mock draft setting, I thought it would be OK to redo a pick I screwed up. Two similar situations, two different results.

Interesting question.

If it were a one-time grocery store thing, I would most likely alert the clerk, if I were in the moral mood that I am usually in.

HOWEVER, in college, we were continually screwed by our cafeteria service. We found out we were charged differently for the same orders, and overall we were nailed for our food (which they pretty much had a monopoly over). So we would come up with tricks to get things by the cashiers. We wouldn't pocket stuff -- nothing that would be outright obvious stealing. We'd do things like put milk in our cereal just to the point where you couldn't see it in the bowl, and then fill up a cup of milk and tell em' that that was for the cereal so they wouldn't charge you for it.

Otherwise, yeah, be a good dude.

When I was a teenager, a K-Mart opened up in my neighborhood. Prior to that, my family and I had never stepped foot in a K-Mart, let alone a Super K with produce section, full service deli, just like any old supermarket chain. The novelty wore off after a month or two since it opened and I think one part of it had to do with K-Mart's lemon pepper fried chicken being so bad. I mean, at least Albertson's doesn't do anything experimental with their chicken. Never had it again and I haven't been to a K-Mart or any one-stop shop supermarket in forever.
