Would you take one? Moral Dilemma or Easy Choice?

If you saw 3 unopened bottles of ice-cold soda sitting unattended in a public space, would you take one?

I was recently in an situation where 3 small bottles of soda were sitting alone as if to say “take me”. I have a very guilty conscience and if I took one, it probably would of weighed on me for days as I contemplate ‘Did I just take someone’s drink?’, ‘Was I stealing?’, ‘What if I get caught?’. Therefore, I didn’t take one; however, the person I was with did and without a second thought. I neither agree or disagree with the actions; after all, it could easily be argued that if no one takes them, they’re going to waste.
