    When someone gives you a bandage when you need it, you may think it’s fair to give them one in return when you get a chance to buy some. But by giving someone a Band-Aid when they have no need of it, it implies that you wish them to need it. So don’t pay back a Band-Aid with a Band-Aid.

    Lior: Most Poskim say that neighbors (and friends) aren’t Makpid on those little differences so it’s okay.

    Don’t pay back a bottle of milk with another bottle of milk as it may be ribbis if the bottle you give contains a bit more milk than the bottle you received. So take a bit off first to insure that it isn’t more and ask the loaner mechila in case it is a bit less.

    The bottle comes pre-measured.

    They comparable measurements between one bottle and the next isn’t necessarily precise in regards to both being exactly filled to the brim.

    If bottles of milk are not all equally full, the person who fills them is cheating some of the buyers.

    Not necessarily. He may be giving some buyers more than they paid for and everyone else exactly what they paid for.

    Rebyidd, very cute. Were you going through old threads, or were you mechaven(es)?

    Off topic but when I saw this thread all I thought of was the Marvelous Midos Machine (I think!) song about nekamah “don’t pay back a bad deed with a bad deed of your own…”

    Just saying

    Sam: That point would seem to help if you underpay (since as you said their mochel) but not if you overpay (since it is ribbis even if their not makpid.)

    Lior: Not true. It’s not Ribbis because it’s normal behavior and the extra is just an everyday neighborly minute Matanah.

    The chashash ribbis is if the price of a container of milk goes up, but two bottles of pre-measured milk, even if one has ? oz. more, are worth precisely the same amount.

    DY: Se’ah B’se’ah is a separate issue from the issue Poskim discuss of lending vegetables (where paying back a carrot for a carrot will necessarily not be precisely the same size).

    I’m saying that this isn’t like vegetables because the two containers are considered identical.

    At what point does one consider it not identical? Does it have to be visibly different, or can one bottle contain an extra molecule?
