Question would you steal a car?

Ok, so you're in a town you've never been to no one knows who you are. You kind of disguise yourself just in case,like this:bandit: , you go to a dealership. and there's your dream car, wether it be a ferrari, viper, skyline, or for any pudwackers an aztek. Would you "test" drive it and just never return it. run the shit out of it, then dump it some 4 states away? If i knew i could get away with it i would.

I'd do it, but ONLY if I knew for sure that I won't be caught

Does this belong in Philosophizing? It is certainly a moral dilemma. Would you break a rule if you knew you wouldn't get caught?

Me: no. I would not want someone to do it to me, therefore I won't do it to someone else.

The real question is:

How do you really know? How sure do you have to be? 90%? 99%? 99.9999%?

Im talking about from a dealership so it wouldnt nessesarily be stealing from a person, the cars arent actually owned. are they? as for how sure, i couldnt be, it would never be a 100% thing theres always a chance of being caught. and also just to add in real life and not "internet" life i never would steal a car it is a moral line, that i wouldn't cross. jesus maybe this does belong in philosphy.

as for igor stealing your keys...i bet he would.

You have to think of the stakeholders in the situation. If I was in charge of the dealership, I'd probably fire the poor dumb salesperson who handed you the keys. So you just got that guy fired. (hypothetically)

I wouldn't steal from a person. A dearlership is a different matter. There is no way I would know that I couldn't be caught.

a few things to consider

The dealership might have cameras in the parking lot.
I have NEVER had a salesman ride in the car for a test drive.
i would have my cousin do it, he is a professional con-artist.

You've never had anyone from a dealership ride with you? Thats weird, any time i've test driven a car from a dealership someone has always riden with me. How old are you? Maybe its because im a kid and they think i'll just go out hot roddin in their car, which is basically what you want to do, right? I mean you want to see what it can do before you buy it dont you?

You guys are nuts! How could you even think of pulling off something like that? Whether you do it to a person or to a dealership, it's a moral dilemma and surely there will be extremely negative consequences! A true man affords his own car out of his own pocket, whether it's a GEO or KIA. Now that's respect! Cheers!

A sales guy has always gone with me...always.
Only exception was when I was checking out motorcycles...I don't know why they didn't want to ride with me then..
