    Default Wwyd?

    You're at a supermarket with a 2 for $6 600 ml soft drink deal.

    You pick up two bottles and promptly drop one. It falls hard on the floor, and you just know it's gonna become explosion central when you open it.

    Do you do a sneaky and put it back in the fridge and swap for a new one? (Thinking perhaps if someone else buys it and it's flat, they can return it and get a good one.)

    Do you do a sneaky and leave it on a shelf somewhere, replacing it with a fresh bottle in your basket?

    Do you rationalise that it's your fault for dropping it and no one else should suffer as a result, and buy it anyway?

    You know, I'd buy it and just expect it to fizz so open it outside or something. I'm always worried someone is going to say something to me or karma would get me.

    I'd feel too guilty to leave it in case it fizzed all over the next unwitting person who bought it. Is hate to ruin someone's clothes/couch/floor. But I do tend to overthink things... So yeah, I'd just buy it.

    I'd put it back. Because I don't believe in karma and even if I did, it's a soft drink bottle not a missile launched at a primary school 😉

    Put it back in the back of the fridge so it unlikely to be chosen next. It only takes a few mins for it to settle again.

    It's a slippery slope, though Moxy. First it's a soft drink, nek minit bestiality...
