If everyone did it, maybe one day I would benefit from the person in front of me. This might even be a reason to be polite to the person in front, instead of wishing they would hurry up. It might even discourage queue-jumping?
However, if you wish to hover around the self-checkout to instantly collect receipts people have left behind, then that is morally wrong. I'm sure there are some out there who do it, but I'd hope the supermarket would throw them out!
Personally, the warm glow from telling someone they've left their voucher behind is worth more than spending the 38p that wasn't intended for me in the first place.
I wish Tesco would do that, my coupons are always rubbish and I don't do a lot of shopping in there.
A bit of an overreaction there?
I think taking a voucher receipt with £1.36 off your next shop is a little different to stealing somebody's credit card. Jeez
Would be very embarrassing if they actually did want it and turned around only to catch you swiping it up!
I wouldn't go to the extremes of picking receipts out of the bin, but when one is just sitting there I see no harm in using it. If the person who it belonged to was nearby I'd point it out, but if they're long gone then it's only going to go to waste anyway.
