Recently today I was talking to a customer and really liked his watch. We talked about watches, life and some other stuff, and then left.
Then about an hour or two later he calls the store and requests for me and I’m on the phone so I tell him that I’m speaking. He then asks me how much longer I’d be at my workplace and I tell him less than 20 minutes. He tells me to stay for a bit because he wants to show me a picture.
Fast forward 20 minutes and this dude comes in and gives me one of his $300 watches. I was very surprised and gave him a hug and then he left and I went home.
My question is what would you guys recommend in similar situations or even this exact situation. Was it wrong for me to take the watch? Could it have been stolen or he potentially wants something from me? I typically try not to see the worst in people but after some self reflection and talking to my parents about it there could have been some malicious intent even though he seemed like a genuinely nice dude.
