Boston condo sales showing
Today, after I came back from a Boston condo sale showing, I saw a $10.00 bill on Revere Street in Beacon Hill. I picked up the bill and put it in my pocket. I’m feeling a little guilty, but I don’t know why. When I found the bill there was nobody around, so what was I suppose to do?
If I found the money with some form of identification attached to it, I would have tried to return it to the proper owner. But there was no way to distinguish the money, if so I’d have made an effort to return it to its rightful owner. I guess, there is no simple or effective way to return the money in this situation. I view it as the owner was irresponsible, and I shouldn’t feel any guilt about pocketing the doe. Of course, if someone returns while I’m still there and is searching for something, I’ll ask them what they’re looking for and if they tell me, then I’ll give them the money that I found. If it’s possible for me to leave a note I’ll do so, simply stating “I found an item of some value here. If you lost it, call me and identify it.” However, that seems a little impractical.
To sum it up, if there is a reasonably, simple way for me to return the money, I’ll do so. If there is no clear way to make it possible for me to return the money, I’ll pocket the cash. In the end, it’s all about putting yourself in the shoes of the person that lost it – if they put up a reasonable effort to find it, I’ll do the same.
So, what would you do after leaving a Boston condo showing and you spotted a $10.00 bill laying on the street? Would you be like the guy in this video below?
Watch this funny clip below to the end, worthwhile, I promise.
