I agree that it's definitely the morally correct choice I'm interested it what people would -actually- hypothetically do as I was posed with the decision today and these are a few of the more distinct choices I saw available. Mere curiosity, no intending to cause anyone to pass judgement on others |- freedom
as a cabby i have found wallets in cab
its a hard choice if they are kind and polite or old or with kids or family i have returned to owners
15 years ago i would have kept it
if they give me trouble or are rude arrogant abusive i hand it into office not caring what happens after that
again 15 years ago i would have kept it
so i guess i changed with time
i now do the right thing whoevers wallet it is
Would probably turn it in, though if I was really down and out and if I really needed that green stuff, well, may help myself. Sure almost all of us are honest but it seems as though 100% of the answers are just PC ones.:mhmm:
I'd probably try and contact them if there was a way i could. If they seemed like an ass on the phone or something then i may be tempted to take some $$$ but when it really comes down to it i probably wouldn't. Even if they weren't and ass or i had to turn it into the police station i admit i'd be tempted to take some cash though really i probably wouldn't. So pretty much the first one choice.
This happened to me.. We stopped at a red light and I looked over at the bus bench and there was a purse sitting there... We took it to the police station and it turned out to be a little old ladys purse with all her socialsecurity money in there.. I felt good because she really needed that money..
It's great to know there is so much good will and honesty left in the world I'm rarely -impressed- by the state of the world lol Out of the people I've asked personally not -one- has said they wouldn't take the money, or even more. Thanks for the hopefully thoughts |- freedom
Check the wallet/purse for an id and adress and return it there myself without taking anything from it, or trying to call the owner to come get it back .
I can't believe all the people at the police stations or the shops can all be honest enough to return it to the owner. Call me paranoid or whatever, but at least you'll get everything back
That's what i'd want people to do if they would find stuff from me.
