    And you notice this. And walk out without saying anything. Is that theft?

    I wouldn't say it's theft but immoral for you to not give it. It doesn't benefit the cashier if you take it or not due to the company making extra money.

    Nope, because it was given to you. However, if you knowling know this then technically I'm sure you could be prosecuted under some archaic legislation, but i'd just go back into the store and say sorry, if not just give it to charity.

    I always give it back when I notice it. If I notice later on, then I go back.

    It's theft. Key to this is Theft Act 1968 s5(4).

    If you do so dishonestly then yes.

    It's all in the Ghosh Test.

    Awful thing.
