How to invest against bad times?

ATM Windfall

I just went to my corner credit union ATM and made a $15 withdrawal. The machine gave me $80. Reflexively, I went into the branch, and reported it. They were appreciative. Two people virtually raced over to the back of the machine to shut it down.

At the time, it was a no brainer. But I am wondering if, since the receipt I got indicated a $15 withdrawal, and the cameras usually focus and faces, what would the traceability of it have been? I wonder if Diebold might have been stuck with the mistake. . .Maybe my honesty could have been turned into a political act, if Diebold would have lost out on the money. . .

Vending Machine Bonus!

Ethical question. The junk food vending machine in my department occasionally gets into a mode where the food is dispensed, but the money drops into the coin return bin. If you put in more than the required amount it will also give change, in addition to the food and original coins.

My question is, am I obligated to inform my colleagues?
