Would You Break The Law to Save Money?
I recently read a survey which found 53% of people have done something illegal to save money. The most common infractions include switching labels, tricking the self-checkout scanners, and blatant stealing. Although this survey may be about semantics, isn’t switching the labels and fooling the self checkout considered stealing anyway?
Also making the list was “lying to friends,” like telling them you forgot your wallet or cash so they get stuck with the bill. This one, of course, isn’t illegal, but it IS unethical. And I just don’t get it. Friends that do that aren’t friends. They’re frenemies at best.
Have you done something unlawful or dishonest in the interest of saving money? If so, what? Don’t worry. I’m sure the statute of limitations is up by now.
