Aloha Friday

Friday is the day that Hawaiians take it easy and get ready for the weekend. So in that spirit we’re asking a simple question. Head on over to An Island Life for more Aloha Friday fun and to sign Mr. Linky if you’re playing.  So this is the question today,

If you found $25.00 cash laying in a store parking lot, would you turn it in?


If I had the kids with me, it wouldn’t even be a question. We would go up to the service desk and turn the money in. I’d like to think if I was alone I’d still do the right thing and turn it in. I know I’d feel wicked guilty if I didn’t.


Okay, I’m going to be a little more honest here…I’m sure I will get crap for it, but oh well.  I agree with Elle that if I had my kids with me, I would definitely turn in the money to teach the, “honesty is the best policy” rule.  But if I did not have the kids with me, well, that would be the grey area, that’s where the, “Finders keeper, losers weepers” rule may come into play.  For example, if I found a wallet or a pocketbook, I would definitely turn it right in and not even look inside.  But if $25.00 was blowing around the parking lot, well, that may be a sign that someone knows I need some money that week.  What if it was in a plaza with a bunch of different stores?  Which store would you bring it to?  Let’s just say, there are a lot of circumstances that would influence what I may or may not  do.  Go ahead judge….
