While walking on the beach you stumble on a valuable object buried in the sand — say, a piece of jewelry or an envelope full of cash. What do you do with it? Under what circumstances would you keep it?
It depends. If I was in a dire situation and needed the money I probably wouldn’t hesitate to keep/take it. I don’t know if that makes me a bad person but it’s what I would do. If I was at least somewhat sustainable I’d make an effort to find the person who lost it. Just because I think we’ve all been there before. We’ve all lost something that we’ve had go unfound and if we can prevent that from happening for a person, I think that’s a good thing.
