I once found a wallet full of cash and gift cards at the library at my college back when I was still in school. I turned it into the librarian who gave me the stink eye and asked “is everything that was in it when you found it still in it?” I just stared at her wondering why the hell she would ask that of someone turning in a wallet. I mean even if I had been enough of a jerk to take money from it, which I wouldn’t do but I accept that she didn’t know that, I wouldn’t have admitted to it. I told her I didn’t take anything and she still kept giving me a stink eye as if I was lying. I will admit it pissed me off a bit. I tried to do something nice for someone and brought it right up to the front desk. I know how scary it is to loose your wallet and fear having to cancel all your cards and I don’t think they should have someone trying to stare down anyone turning it found stuff and make it more difficult to do the right thing then to just keep it.
@George Feeny, yeah being a jackass like that sort of discourages good deeds.
@Monad Vairocana, I’m saying. It’s not like I was expecting a thank you I honestly figured I would just turn it in say where I found it and then walk away I wasn’t expecting any more then that much less suspicion lol
@George Feeny, 'if I was going to steal from it why would I even bother turning it in'
@SpatialParadox, "Oh sorry youre right I did take something from it let me put it back in *takes wallet and walks away* OR *takes out my own drivers license that looks nothing like me anymore and put it in place of original owners*
Good guy teen does the right thing. 13/10 am very proud of him.
@big freedom, he's a good teen Bront
Last year near our Union building at University of Utah, I was walking with my friend and he found someone's phone in the grass. He didn't want to take care of it or make sure it got back to the owner or anything, so he gave it to me. I wasn't really sure what to do cuz the phone had a passcode, but then the kids mom texted him, so I replied saying something like "I just found this phone on the ground, could you call me so I can return it?", Which confused the mom, but after a few texts I managed to get her to call, and she was conveniently in salt lake for like 2 more days, so she came up to campus and met me at the book store and I returned the phone.
After she wouldn't let me leave without taking $30 as a reward, (which I honestly didn't want, cuz if I lost my phone I would want someone to return it without expecting me to pay them back), but then I took the money just to get back at my friend for not doing the right thing.
Afterwards he was mad that he didn't do the right thing.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, how did you text her if the phone had a passcode?
@Patamon, it let me reply to incoming texts from the lockscreen, but only let me reply to each new message once. I'm not used to ios, but I believe it was an iPhone 5s.
I was surprised it let me reply, but I can't complain cuz it meant the phone got back to the kid who owns it (even if I were scummy enough to just steal it, I wouldn't really want an iPhone 😅 I strongly prefer Android)
Obviously a white neighborhood
Good to know the dude that shared the post would've stolen from the wallet instead..
Hopefully he would have done the right thing of he didnt notice there was a camera watching him
Spike Lee said it best. "Do the right thing!"
