I feel like Wayne and Garth!

I found a debit card in the atm when I drove up. The persons account was still open and everything! And it was a business account no less! Could've taken every last cent.

Anyway, I took the card with me since the bank was already closed, looked up the business online, and called the lady. She was so thankful for having her card returned that she sent me a check for $100!!!

Good deeds pay off sometimes! WOOT!

I did a good deed once. Some girls wallet dropped out of her purse, so I picked it up and tried to give it back and her grandmother (or whatever old lady she was with) turned around, saw me with it and assumed I stole it, so she slapped me and took it out of my hands. So sometimes they don't pay of...lol

hahah!!! Yes, I was careful to say that they only pay off sometimes ;)

I tried to do good deeds for my nemesis in the nemesis thread and that just came back and bit me in the a$$.

You realize you could have taken thousands and almost certainly got away with it? $100 isn't much, like if I were you I wouldn't really be actively rejoicing just much more reflecting. It's really rare that you'd be in such a directly moral situation that's extremely relevant to you.

If you were 100% guaranteed to get away with it would you have taken from the account? How much? Be honest, was fear of being caught your main motive for returning?

Sorry, this just really interests me.

I know! It's interesting isn't it??
It's like one of those moral thought experiments posed to understand human nature and morality.

But yes, I'm definitely rejoicing. That lady and I both just contributed to the goodness of humanity.

And if I had taken the money.... I don't think I would have liked it. What would I have done with the money that could be more important than this woman's life work? Her business is far more important than my weed stash. I'm getting by.

No. The thought of taking money didn't occur to me in the slightest. As soon as I realized there was a card in there, I immediately removed it and put it in an envelope to return it to the bank.

HOWEVER- Say it had been a business card for Target, Wal-Mart, or some other huge business- that would have made me wish I hadn't been so hasty in removing the card.

Much as I like to make fun of moral busy bodies, and as much as I dislike Kant, I do try and live by the platinum rule.

If everyone everywhere in situations like this took the money, how would the world be? Not a world I want to live in.

I rest easy knowing that I helped her faith in humanity. And I'm impressed by her generosity and feel the same way. Nobody likes to get f*cked over.

If there were more people like you in the world, there would be more people who reacted in the way that the lady did.

You did the right thing, Oryus. That is more important than the money ;)
