Shabbat goy – Letter vs Spirit of the Law (Halacha)

A non-Jewish friend told a familiar story – he was walking through an Orthodox neighborhood when he was approached by a visibly Orthodox Jewish man who asked him to come inside and plug something in for him. The wife gave him a homemade cookie before he was sent on his way.

My question is – how is this okay? As a Jew, you’re still breaking the sabbath, just doing it by proxy.

Does anyone else see it this way?
