This morning I bought a newspaper at the store, then left it at home while I went into town. Getting back home at lunchtime, my family told me that the wrong magazine had been inserted in the newspaper. It was the magazine for an alternative newspaper - the one for the newspaper I bought was missing and so I’m assuming somebody else has it.
I thought of taking the magazine back to the store I got it from, but my family had already thrown it in the refuse. So I’m thinking there’s not much I can do about it, the only thing I can do is tell someone at the store tomorrow - when I go for tomorrow’s news - what happened.
As it looks like somebody has just got the magazines mixed up, I’m assuming that nobody has “lost out”. Someone else has just got the one I should have, and they’ve got the one I should have. So I’m guessing it isn’t theft as it was accidental on my part and that I’m just being neurotic/scrupulous. But thought it best to run it by somebody independent!
