So.

Whoever changed my brother's tires at Wal-Mart left a really nice, expensive torque wrench in his truck when they were done. He's debating keeping it; we've decided that it basically comes down to whether or not the person A) has to bring their own tools and B) if they'd get in trouble for losing that. If the answer to both of those is no, then we're fine with keeping it; otherwise, morals say to bring it back.

Anybody have any (relevant and helpful) experience?

He's already on his way to return it; I just wanted to see what the Pit says.

Wal-Mart won't stop until it becomes the United States of Wal-Mart and the dictionaries say:

capitalism (n): see Wal-Mart

Take it back dude. Nothing can replace a well used torque wrench.


But seriously, if that thing is a Snap-On it's probably worth several millions of dollars.

mint we have that shit here too but they mostly just do tire and oil changes

godspeed to anyone who trusts them to do anything more than that

I've never seen a walmart that offers mechanic work

the local ones usually have a deli, fully stocked garden section, pharmacy, and guns sometimes but I have never seen one with a mechanic

There are 100000 wal marts. You steal this wrench there will just be another wal mart with a wrench. You know what else? Wal mart is a store.Why are you focusing on Wal Mart, they also have wrenches at target/

Agreed. The guy probably makes barely minimum wage, you shouldn't knowingly jeopardize his job.

good on you. I would have kept it, nice torque wrenches are expensive. but I'm a bastard

doubt they have to bring their own anyways, with a high-dollar employer like that

lol typical america still driving cars. get up on that euro transit lol this is 2014 not 1967
#22
as someone who has worked for walmart almost certain it wasnt the mechanics personal wrench but that it would have been deducted from bonuses paid out to the stores employees

They hire kids that can barely turn a wrench and turn down guys who have taken actual automotive classes and have credentials in the industry. Same with Sears, from my experience with them.

Walmart, biggest corporate failure to come.
