    Money Moral Dilemma: Should I tell hotel staff the vending machine is dispensing free snacks? 15th Oct 19 at 6:03 PM
    This week's MoneySaver who wants advice asks...

    I regularly stay at a certain budget hotel, which has a vending machine near the entrance. Recently it's had an 'out of order' sign, but when I last stayed, I spotted some other guests using it. When I tried it out, I got a free pack of crisps. So the machine is working... it's just not asking for any money before dispensing items. Should I tell hotel staff?

    Unfortunately the MSE team can't always answer money moral dilemma questions as contributions are often emailed in or suggested in person. They are intended to be enjoyed as a point of debate and discussed at face value.

    Sounds like a convenient construct to manufacture a moral dilemia question.
