You may be surprised that this is even a question because obviously it's never ok to steal anything. However there seems to be a common dilemma regarding stealing an umbrella if yours has been stolen first. You know the situation: you’re at a shop or restaurant and all the umbrellas are stored by the door, you reach for yours on the way out only to find out that it’s missing. Now do you a) assume someone’s taken yours by mistake and take one looking the most similar (theirs?) b) leave (report to police or manager) and accept that your umbrella has been stolen?
