You dont pay for "the food you EAT at that one sitting"

Like I said, I have been to buffets that have posted signs stating that is exactly what you are paying for. Granted, businesses can post any of their policies on the wall. That doesn't necessarily mean they are legally enforceable.

IANAL, but I would think taking food home from a buffet is technically illegal. But, unless the offense was egregious (~$100+ worth of food), I doubt the restaurant would do anything more than ban you for doing this, if they cared about it at all. It wouldn't be worth the hassle.

Fiance: a male who is engaged to be married.
Fiancee: a female who is engaged to be married.

the above are the rules of grammar and should be obeyed even if you choose to not obey the rules relating to sneaking food out of the buffet area.
The lost wallet incident is outright theft.

All these things do reveal character but very few people 'walk on water'. A muffin stuck in a handbag is one thing but an entire plate of shrimp is more serious. Remember... you are stealing from the Employees Dining Room when you do that. I once had a dealer tell me 'he was thinking seven eleven markets were starting to look attractive and that the casinos free scrambled eggs and sausage for eployees was getting tiresome after five years. Dealers can have a hard life; don't steal from them.

I also think there is something different between taking $130 out of someones wallet (which can be rightfully returned to the owner assuming there is some identification inside)

And taking some shrimp which you actually paid for anf which is going in the garbage once its on your plate out of a buffet

Its interesting EB equates taking food on your plate out of a buffet as stealing

I would equate it more as an advantage play - against house rules but not criminal in any way. I doubt anyone can be arrested for smuggling food out of a buffet they paid entry into

This pretty much shows where EB head is

P.S. gets my hijacked thread back on topic too





And where your head is, as well. Stealing is an advantage play. How many times did you fill up your plate and save all that food from being wasted by stealing it?

Fiance vs fiancee - I never knew that. Thanks

Are the casino employees getting the uneaten shrimp from the buffet served later in their dining area?

A bit speechless about that one

When opportunity knocks, be ready to respond.

One day while walking up the courthouse steps I saw a key ring full of keys detach from the armored guard attendant in front of me; they fell onto the steps and the guy didn't know it, he just kept walking.

I picked them up.

At that instant I had to make a decision.

I immediately told him what happened and returned them.

Obviously that was the right choice; no way I could have used them to further a crime (or could I?).

But how about this: most nights I walk the 'hood for a midnight constitutional.

I sometimes fantacize about spotting a bag full of money, or a box, whatever, cast on the side of the road.

What if you actually stumbled across such a thing, say an unmarked bag with a hundred grand or more it, what would you do?

What if instead of being unmarked it had markings of ownership: same answer?

Ah, the subtle shades of morality,

Just as the law draws a divide between seriousness of crimes so do I

Taking food from a buffet i paid to enter. No problem

Taking a bag of money from an armored truck because the guard dropped his keys. Hell no

Finding money on the floor with no identification - large sum (over a grand) I turn it in. Less than a grand I probably pocket it

With owners identification I try to always return it. You never know when you lose money and would want the same
