What do you do when you find something that doesn't belong to you? What if it has no name or any way of locating the owner. Do you take it if it seems it might be something you can use? Or do you leave it? Does it depend on the value? If its something cheap do you just figure that its really not worthwhile trying to find the owner? If its expensive would you make an attempt at locating them?
Example: Aprox 6 years my boss at the time was shopping at Wal-Mart and found abandoned in a shopping cart outside a brand-new camera. it was a $300 camera as she looked at the price inside afterwards. Now ultimately she kept it but not without first letting Wal-mart know that she found it and she gave her phone # so that the owner if they called could reach her. Now she checked with them after a few days to see if anyone called about it but noone had. Therefore she felt she had done her duty to find the owner and now it was hers.
Today I found something in a similiar manner. After I get some responses I'll let you know what it was and what I did. I just wanted your input on moral and values with situations like this.
