Recently I ordered a pair of tennis shoes from Foot Locker. I never received them and when I called Customer Service, they told me the shoes had been returned. (I won't even go into delivery service to our house.) So I the kind lady sent me another pair. I got that pair in a few days and all things were right in my world.
Then I received a box from UPS...another pair of the same exacty pair of shoes. (I'm guessing they were the original pair.) What the heck? Two pair of ridiculously expensive shoes? The second pair being totally free? Score!
But wait...there's that pesky conscience again. I knew the right thing to do would be to call and return the shoes. Maybe they will say to go ahead and keep the shoes, since you know, it'd be such a hassle and all to send them back.
When I called Customer Service again the lady was surprised at my honesty. She said she would send me a mailing label to return them (so much for charity). Then she told me that FootLocker would send me a giftcard for being honest.
Well, that's a pleasant surprise. Thank you.
Yesterday I received my gift card in the mail.
What??? My honesty is only worth $10???? Those shoes were $115!!!!
***Despite the fact that the gift card is only $10, I am happy that I returned the shoes. I would never have been able to wear them and it would've eaten at my conscience.***
