On Wednesdays, I throw out a question that asks, "What Would You Do If ...?" and I would love to hear - what you would do.
Today, the What Would You Do If question comes from Texan Mama over at Who Put Me In Charge Of These People. She sent me an e-mail about something that happened to her and wondered what other people do in this situation.
Please read Texan Mama's story from her e-mail and then offer your opinion/answer in the comments.
Oh, something happened to me today and I thought, I wonder what other people would do in this situation...
It's not exactly controversial, but it's a thinker.
I'll just tell ya as it happened to me.
I had just returned from a long day, dropping the kids at school, then to Target to shop, then to Bible study, then finally home at noon. Upon getting home to put away the groceries, I look at the jam I am about to put away in the pantry. I notice the little "popper button" is popped UP. Hmmm, shouldn't it be down? I press it and, yup, it's up. So I go to open the jar and notice a little dent in the side of the metal lid. My immediate thought is, oh, the popper must have popped up when this jar got dropped. I probably dropped it or it banged against something in the van. I open the jar and everything looks brand new and fine. I give it the smell test - pass with flying colors. So, what did I do?
I just put it away in the fridge.
Am I playing roulette with my family's health? Maybe. Could I have returned it and gotten a new one? Dunno, probably. Should I have just thrown it away and chucked up the loss of $2 to being cheaper than a medical bill of hundreds?
But I did none of those. I put the jam in the fridge.
Maybe I should go get it now and pitch it....
