A matter of opinion. Emotions have no place in business, she sold a product far less than its actual value; he is totally not at fault.
Not saying he at fault. Just that the person who bought the pants had no conscious and its obvious to a 3yr old that there was a mistake.
...which would also be illegal. Is everyone here confused about the difference between "returning a lost item" and "business transactions". No one would bat an eyelash if Microsoft accidentally gave Windows 8 out for free at its stores and you better believe there would be outrage if they blacklisted the keys.
It is not a business transaction and its not a matter of returning a lost item. It is a matter of right and wrong and doing the right thing. There have been articles posted here where lots of money was found, and the person returned it. These are good and honest people. It is obvious to anyone that if you buy a $15 pair of jeans and find goods worth thousands in them that there was a mistake.
All I know is that if something like this would have ever happened to me, I would want the person to do what I would...return the item. What goes around comes around.
Keyword: found. No one found these pants, they were sold, as is, for a value far less than the actual worth. There was no "infliction of harm" against standards.
Yes, pants were sold but that wasnt his point. Pants were sold and other items found that obviously were not meant to be sold.
