What would You Do?


If you were out at a public event such as a flower exhibition, and in your travels around the venue you found a plastic bag that someone had dropped and it contained $400 in cash, what would you do?

Would you hand it in to the organisers?
Would you take it to the nearest Police Station?
Would you just pocket the money and then spend it there?
Would you just pocket the money and get up and go?

Now if on the other hand it was your money and you had dropped it, what would you do?

If someone was honest enough to have handed it in and you managed to reclaim your money, what would you do?

Personally if it was me I would have kept the money in my pocket in my wallet to avoid dropping it in the first place.

If I had found the money at such a venue I would have handed it in. Im too bloody honest for my own good sometimes. If I thought it was drug money then I would have handed it in to the Police.

If I had lost the money and managed to retrieve it, then I would have thanked the persons who helped to return it to me and have even gone to the effort of giving the finder a 5 to 10 % tip for their honesty. I figure that the money was effectively totally lost, so to tip the person who was honest is a small price to pay for getting the majority of my money back.

The question still remains though, "What would You Do?

If it was me that found it.... I'd have kept it. If I had lost it and it was returned I'd give that someone a reward, since I'd have given it up as a total loss anyway.

PK I think that there is a double standard at play in your comment.

You expect to be able to keep money that You find and yet You expect others to return money You have lost.

It is good that you would pay a finders fee or tip, but not so good that you hold yourself to one standard and expect others to uphold another standard.

I must say that I am somewhat surprised by your comment as it is not at all what I would have expected from you, so I am somewhat troubled, perplexed even. MMMM have to think about this as it is not the response I would have associated with the Princess of Blogland, defender of nice bloggers everywhere. Has the Dark side seduced PK?

No, I do NOT expect it to be returned, that's why the reward.

Haven't you read my post Guardian, but no Angel...?

Thank you... but please help me off this pedestal, it's too tall and narrow to be safe.
