DresserQueen did nothing wrong in taking the package, since the delivery driver gave it to her, unless of course, she cajoled him into doing so. If it was a case of "I'm Marina's best friend, I always take her packages for her" then that's different.
DQ did wrong in not notifying Marina immediately that she had possesion of the package. She did wrong in repeatedly dropping it, and she did wrong by opening it, since it wasn't adressed to her.
If she dropped it on accident, and was worried about the possibilaty of having broken it, her best bet would have been to keep the box closed. Why? If it's broken in the box, it cannot be proved that she broke it with a bad intent. The box could be examined, but that's it. by opening it, she can no longer claim that she did not know it was broken, or, for that matter, that it was an accident.
Marina-the best way to know if it was broken in the box, look at the packaging. Are there glass fragments in teh packaging? If it is anything but a perfectly clean break, there should be glass in the packing material, and the wrapping around the glass should be torn in allignment with the break.
Can you tell I jsut got out of a law class? Even in medical law, we still cover non medical things!
