    I would return it. As much as I'd like to have it, it's stealing and that's definitely not cool with me. People have such loose morals nowadays and that's pretty sad. I'd think about the person that lost it. I'm sure they'd be relieved...I know I would.

    Nah. I mean, come on! Think about it! I may be the honest citizen and turn it in, but who's to say that the guy I give it to won't turn around and take it?
    Why not swipe it while I have the chance? :D

    katherine; from your picture im assuming youre in your teens / early twenties.
    now is the time to form your ethics and morals. why not swipe it? because
    thats stealing, thats why. do you steal from stores? do you mug people?
    no? good. but this scenario is basically the same thing.
    wake up, kiddo.

    Of course I would return it. To keep what is not knowingly yours makes you a Thief. Someone who would not return it has no conscious or morals and probably has a rap sheet a mile long.

    Did it ever occur to you that whom ever lost that $375.00 earned that money that he or she needed to pay bills and put food on the table? KNowingly keeping what is not yours makes you a "Thief".

    Whatever happened to doing what is RIGHT.

    Work for your money instead of thinking you are ENTITLED to what others work for and earn.


    food table knowingly thief work money thinking entitled work earn

    WRONG!
    what would have made me a thief,
    [you sanctimonious,finger-pointing...
    is if i WATCHED the person drop the envelope,
    and then snatched it.
    in this case,there was nobody around to claim it,
    so i kept it.and i was 13.
    i do work for my money,you sure make an awful
    lot of insipid assumptions,based on your evident
    prejudices.

    he who is guilty is the one who has much to say.

    When you keep MONEY that is KNOWINGLY NOT yours to KEEP than it makes YOu a T.H.I.E.F. You should take the money to the police Department where the person who WORKED for and EARNED what money you FOUND would most likely go to see if anyone found His/Her Money and was HONEST and DECENT enough to do the RIGHT THING. It makes NO difference if you were 13 or older. At 13 you know right from wrong. Their is NO need to be VIOLENT in your responses.

    money honest decent difference 13 older 13 wrong violent responses

    Yes, keeping it would be stealing.
  • dogs voice Water Polo 2010/01/19 19:36:54

    And if it was never reported as missing and the person or business did not report it missing, no one knows anything about it. Now what? Why do you think I asked for circumstances before making any decision on this subjuect. It is not stealing if no one is missing it.

    So even though you lie, as long as nobody know you lied it is okay. Here the thing. If you find money, you turn it in to the police. If not claimed in 90 days it is returned to you. They count the money right in front of you, seal it away and contact you if or if nobody claims it. So not stealing if the police turns it right back to you after the 90 days, but if you don't turn it in you are stealing.
  • dogs voice Water Polo 2010/01/19 19:53:36

    Semantics. Again, it is why I asked for circumstances of the find. Generally, your process is what I would do, circumstances or not, and hopefully I would have a windfall after 90 days. However, if the circumstances were that it was untraceable, small denominations, an amount <$10K, found in a totally open area devoid of other human presences and what ever else to make it untraceable, I would just keep it. I would do my best to see about any news stories of lost money and maybe there would be a reward. But here is where people make a big mistake - they tell someone! Or they proceed to put it in the bank or make a large purchase with it. I'd at least keep it under wraps for 90 days while keeping an eye and ear open for a loss notification. After that, SMALL spending on things like groceries or a past due bill. No new car, TV, stereo, furniture, clothing, etc. Anything that would be a give away. Too many want to spread the wealth to family and friends, but they do it too soon. Treat it like the police would. Then enjoy later.

    Semantics or not. If that money is lost by a private party or stolen from a business or private party. If you don't turn it into the police and fill correctly. If and it will catch up to you, you just have to spend a single dollar and by the eye of the law you have stolen the money. FACT

    I understand your point and take it as fact, however, back to my original post of "Circumstances?". More info is needed here to make a better response to the posted question.

    So you are saying depending on the circumstance it is okay to steal
  • dogs voice Water Polo 2010/01/19 20:29:59

    The "bomb" is dropped and almost all of the human race is dead. The local store has food and drink and no cashier. Will you eat and drink or die of thirst and starvation? It is not right to steal, but given circumstances, I think it would be OK. It all depends upon point of view.

  • dogs voice Water Polo 2010/01/19 20:35:01

    Is that a circumstance? Stop trying to get "around" this simple question by adding morales into the equation. I took it point blank as asked. You want me to agree with you, ask with circumstances given.

    There is no circumstance to ever steal
  • dogs voice Water Polo 2010/01/19 20:44:05

    OK. Keep telling yourself that when you are starving and the store is around the corner with no one there. You do it your way and I'll do it mine. We'll see who lasts longer.

    A hungry man can feed himself and still be morally right. Stealing is not moral, you can not hide the line for something that is not needed for life. You are not going to sit around a fire, rollup a wade of 10's, put it on the end of a stick and then eat. Found money is found money, not yours but some worked hard for it.
