What do you think should I do to undo this unethical act?

    What do you think should I do to undo this unethical act?

    Yesterday, I stole apples worth $2 from a mall. It was like I went to the mall to purchase some grocery. I got it billed and paid for the same. While walking out I saw red juicy apples on the shelf. I flinched a few in my bag and walked out. The guard stopped me at the gate and enquired about the unpaid apples. I said ok, I will get it billed. They weighed the apples and a bill was stuck on the item. I went to pay at the counter. There were long queues at each of the counter I hopped to, so I plainly walked out unstopped. What should I do now to undo this unethical act?

    Go back and pay for the apples. Tell them the lines were long, you were in a hurry but now want to be sure and make it right.

    Firstly, if what you have just written is true then you deserve a praise, for sure. The very act of acknowledging the crime shows that you are feeling the throbbing pain of guilt. What I suggest is that you give those apples to someone who needs it more than you do, probably to some poor kids. There is another way to utilize them best - plant their seeds in the garden and play your part in its nurturing.

    All the best!

      I already ate up some. Do you think apple seeds will grow in a pot? I don't have a garden. I live in a flat.

      You can grow them in a pot but have to transfer them to a larger area as they can't bear fruit in that small space!
