Replacing Items in the Minibar Unethical?

In Sunday's New York Times, ethicist Randy Cohen tells a traveler that replacing the Oreos he ate from the minibar with an identical box bought at a convenience store in an effort to save a few bucks is wrong, as "The hotel is providing not just a product but also a service." We're going to disagree with Randy on this one. The reader also provided a service by walking to the convenience store to get the cookies.

What do you think?

I totally agree with you girls. The reader ate the cookies and then walked to the convenience store to replace them. It's the same thing as if they just ate the ones from the store, so what difference does it make? No one got cheated out of anything.
