if you buy a ten ride bus ticket and it works for more than ten rides is that stealing?

If I order a dozen donuts and get home to find 14 in the box, no, I did not steal.

Now, if the pass somehow is malfunctioning and lasts forever I'd likely tell the folks in charge.

How much more than 10? If it works for 11 rides, that is a bookkeeping error on their part and you are not responsible. If it works for 50 rides, and you don't notify them about the error and keep using it, then I think it rises to the level of a more serious issue.

A few weeks ago, I was at the Family Dollar and bought what I believed would cost more than $20. For some reason, the scanner wasn't working and only one item successfully scanned, and my total came to only $3.32. I immediately spoke up and said 'wait, that doesn't make sense, I have items that cost more than $3.32, there is no way my total order is only $3.32.' The cashier looked at the receipt and recognized the error. So she cancelled the transaction and rang everything up again and I paid the correct amount. I knew it was wrong and corrected the error, I could have walked out of the store with more $20 in groceries that I got for only $3.32, but I believed that would be wrong.

However, last week I went to Best Buy and among the items I bought was a 20 oz bottle of Diet Coke. When I got home and looked at my receipt, I noticed that the cashier never scanned the Coke, I got it free. That was an honest error by the cashier, and it was an honest error by me, because the difference in price was so comparatively small, that I didn't notice the price was wrong. I don't feel about that, it was not my fault.

See the difference?

Many times when I order the same breakfast at Bob Evans, it's a different price...
