Question to Ask the Prof: I asked around for sports tickets right before the holidays, willing to pay for them to give as a gift. None came through and as a result, I bought tickets to an away game for the person as they were the only reasonably priced alternative. Now a supplier has sent me free tickets, to a home game, as he was away when I asked and just got the email. Should I return the tickets or use them myself?
A (Professor Barbato): You should explain to the supplier that your friend no longer needs the tickets and give him the option of reclaiming them, selling them to you, or giving them to you.
