A teenager was very naughty

I heard some teenagers talking. One of them got a phone call and then he told his friends all about it. He had asked a company for a hat sample telling them if it was good enough he would order one thousand hats off their company. He didn't really mean that. He just wanted to get a free hat! Why do you think the teenager did that to the company?

I think that he needed a joke more than a free hat. But it's not easy for him to get it. Obviously, such a big amount of hats can't be bought personally, but by an association or a company, so the provider must claim some information about the client. Then I wonder how the boy could get rid of this trick.

I feel like I'm answering questions on an elementary ethics school exam.

I strongly believe that any teenager who engages in this type of behavior is a jerk, and he should be disciplined by his parents. Such companies don't have time to waste on a teenager who likes to play jokes and pranks on people. In the business world, time is money.

Personally i think there is worse things out there a teenager can do in this society than try and get a free hat. It is probally just a bit of fun to see what he could get free, i know several teenagers who would probally do the same thing, doesn't make them bad.

See response #1. Wanted a free hat and thought he could (or wanted to see if he could) get away with it!

Well as you stated he wanted a 'free hat'. As I am sure he was also curious to see if he could get away with it.

Usually teenagers are shortsighted . Sometimes they can't realize what result may come by their utterance. It's nothing but fault of their age. When they will pass their teenage gradually they will be responsible in their talking.

Probably it was just for fun. Unknowingly, he doesn't realize that what he did could make the company lose money for meeting up his order. He was having some fun at the company's expense, you know how some teenagers are now a days. They just do what comes to their minds without really thinking of the consequence of what they did.

He probably wanted to see what would happen. You know how teenagers are. They will do anything for the thrill of it. Kathy.
