Who is to blame when you you accidently break something at a supermarket?
Should you pay or not when you accidentally break something at a supermarket?
This is the question that has created varied reactions on social media.
The debate was sparked by an online user in a private Facebook group. He chastised individuals who would break an item in a supermarket and not do what he claimed was the ‘right’ thing by paying for it.
He further suggested if the broken item made a mess the person responsible should also help the supermarket staff in cleaning.
