I recently bought something on line and complained I did not get the book.


Nearly the same happened to me. I ordered a CD online and as it came from Great Britain i knew it would take some time (usually 7-10 days) but after 2 1/2 weeks i wrote them a mail, asking what happened to the CD. I got a reply that they believe the CD got lost in the mail, so they sent out a second copy. The next day the CD arrived and a week later the second arrived. I took the second one and sent it back with a letter explaining the situation. They wrote me a mail and were very thankful. They also refunded me the money for post & package which i thought was really nice of them


I remember once when i was around with a friend, we found a 50 DM bill, we were around 11 years old and 50 DM was quite an amount of money. While i thought about bringing it to my parents so they can figure out what to do (the money was just lying there, nobody around) my friend insisted on keeping and using it, so i followed, we went to a store bought some stuff and i felt bad about it.

If people lose something and i see it, i always give it back to them. I think it's wrong to keep it if it's money, unless maybe the finder is so poor that the money helps him to survive, in that case i can understand keeping it.

If i see it dropping on the floor from someone, i would definitely give it back, no matter what amount. If its just laying there, i would look around to see if anyone looks like they might be searching for somthing, if not ill keep it.

You were really smart in showing your child honesty is the best policy.

My oldest son is now 35, yes the child from hell I am constantly talking about here on ATS.

He was five and we were out shopping for groceries. As we were getting in the car, I noticed he was getting a candy bar out of his pocket


I asked him, "How did you get that candy bar, I didn't buy it." He sheepishly replied, "I took it".

We marched right back in the store and I asked to see the store manager. I made X hand the manager back the unopened candy bar and tell him, I took this without paying for it.

The manager told him that was wrong and sometimes people that steal go to jail. Then he pulled me aside and said, I was a good mother, that he could see my son learned a valuable lesson.

Now flash forward 30+ years later.............................My son had left a restaurant and the waitress forgot the bill, he got an emergency phone call and left without paying.

He remembered eating there but never received a bill and had to leave quickly so he went back and told the waitress she forgot to bill him and paid her. She was crying and hugging him telling him thank you because she was new and if anyone walked out without paying, the money came from her pocket and she was divorced with two little kids and barely made enough to feed them.

My child from hell, boy he was a handful but our children do not do what we say, they do what they see us do.

You gave your child a lot that day, you showed what a person with honor does and money cannot buy honor.

There was a woman a few months ago walking in front of us and she had her hand in her jacket pocket. When she pulled her hand out her deposit ticket and 150$ fell out onto the ground. My wife and I seen it and picked it up and caught up to her and gave it back. She actually seemed very surprised and very thankful that we gave it back to her.

Now if I seen it just laying on the ground with noone around or did not see whom it came from I would of course keep it but If I know where it came from there is no way I would keep the money. I just wish if I ever dropped money someone would do the same for me.

Actually I had 2 thousand dollars in a my back pocket in a banking slip, went into walmart and noticed it was gone. I was freaking out and ran back to my car and it was laying right beside my car, thankfully noone seen that laying there cause most of the time people would not give it back.

Also, it seems to me that a persons base morality is defined when they are a child. They other day I was in front of an arcade like game that took quarters. I dropped some change out of my wallet. Then a girl about 6+ years of age turned around, looked me in the eye, then proceeded to pick up the change I had just dropped. I thought she was being kind and was just going to help me out. But instead, she took the change, looked at me once more, then turned around to tell her mother "Mom! Mom! Look what I found!" She knew what she did.

I didn't really care about the money, but I was just surprised that she had the ability to blatantly look me in the eye then proceed to take what I had just knowingly dropped 6 inches from my person.

My policy is this: if I see it drop from someone's pocket, I'll make sure they get it back. If I find it lying about on the ground, nobody looking for it, and if it's under 20 bucks, it goes into my pocket and into a kettle drive bin. I'll do the same thing with humane society drives, etc.

It also depends on my financial situation. When I was in college, I would troll the bar district on a Sunday morning and usually find 20-50 dollars in one dollar bills. The way I look at it, nobody is going to miss one dollar. Half of that went to my food fund, as I didn't make much money, and the rest went to charity (mostly the humane society, as my furry child came from one). It has worked for me over the years, and I've had plenty of people save me from loose money falling from my pocket, at the same time knowing that I've dropped money on the ground before and probably made someone's day.

It's all about balance.

Sad and scary.............a little natural born psychopath.

Maybe she will grow up to be a Wall Street Bank Manager.

You might have considered going to her mother and telling her that story but now days, who knows, some people encourage their kids to be sharks.

Im not even surprise seeing so many positives replies from my fellow ATS'ers

Love you all !!! and real proud of all members

i know a lot of people who wouldnt give it back

thats why i dont hang out anymore with such people

Even if the person is rich and you are not
by doing this good action to return it back to its owner
well the owner will probably think twice now
if he see someone droping money on the ground without seeing it
because he was able to retreive the money he lost by mistake
the first thing he will probably think now .. is return it back
by doing good action like this to stranger
we are changing the world to a better place
it is the best way to fight evil of this world

the thing is .. even if i dont like the guy because he his always bitching after me
i would still return the money to him
a negative person will be so confused by this good action
that he have good chances of turning a good guy later

Dont let the chain of good action fall down
always search for any occasions to help

This is garbage, Karma does not happen in the same lifetime, it happens in the next. SO you may not ever see it come back to you in this one. I know from experience I saw a man drop a 100 dollar chip at the Trump Casino and ran him down (he was quite tall and have very long strides as opposed to my short stubby leg strides) Finally caught up to him and handed him his 100 dollar chip at the casino cashier's desk, Move forward some 13 years and I lose 70 dollars in a wal mart and some creep (probably an employee, since no customers were around at all) picks it up directly out of my pocket I know they had to see it drop, because there was only one person around and they were directly behind me in the aisle (employee). They kept it. Lousy wal mart. Another reason to hate that store!

Especially at a Wal Mart!

for me it is obvious wrong morality of evil oness constant life superiority
while i could smile a bit in witnessing those kind of reactions u do meaning good, but im never touched about it, it is crap in form absolutely and in depth it is evil possession

let me try to explain how what i say is a valid argument

in truth, constancy is exclusively for objective positive truth, everyone surely know that in a way or another, being constant aware never mean u but always mean well more to all objective perspective that become always more clear how it is about it exclusively
so meaning well to someone is exclusively for what u should of course mean well to ur kind that constant dont mean at all
that is why surely my reaction to those surprising reactions u do is a smile, how in meaning u u r giving smthg to another as if u r making another richer then urself
right could mean own self kind since it is never meant while free from constancy repetitive means so aware of itself out of that fact
but then the money found could be spent for a smile i mean we cannot tell really but ourselves, oneself represent the absolute reality of all selves left out of truth existence privileges constancy effects

of course if it is big money then there is an issue of meaning money replacing oneself rights out of truth, so negatively as if indirectly oneself dont care about truth existence it owes to first to recognize for meaning itself out with certain issues
so for big money i guess i would give it back but with regrets forcing myself to forget about it
but for 20$ on the contrary it is normal to enjoy it, we need so many rights of the absolute ground speaking to us where noone else is involved

Good question. I would give it back, because I saw where it came from at the time it occurred. If it had been on the ground for sometime then yes it is indeed finders keepers.

However; I think it can be the other way around. Say for example if the guy who dropped the money looked like a jerk in a nice suit, and it looked like he didn't need the money. I would pick it up, and give it to the first homeless person I see within that vicinity.

u dont believe me when i say that knowledge is evil base, but u dont mean to believe me anyways

truth base is fact that immediately is the reason of being an effect as leting itself go like it while there being aware of the fact being the base n the effect being itself, then almost at the same time being out of both free of fact n effect as a stand justified knowing relatively that

so knowledge in truth is never absolute, while once as a human individual mind u can reach to realize objective absolute facts ur realisations are objective so truth reality never smthg to know of u nor u

while evil base is objective knowledge without ever being an effect, so the knowledge is wider but of course superficial enough to b opposed to objective fact

so knowledge base stand in the middle of both extremities known, the most superior and the most inferior

the most superior is the knowledge of relative right effects before it and the most inferior knowledge is about all what is not aware of fact as its stand
so the medium stand deform relative rights of before abusing the knowledge of being relative so never absolute to weaken it, so as if saying what come first is always less if known
and abuse the not knowing by defining their grounds by keeping showing of how they are down inferiors to enslave always from whatever knowledge of up necessarily

that is how they make fun of u while enslaving u the max by forcing u to believe that u r getting smthg from recognizing others shares they decided as facts

Whether it is or not, I'd rather be the honorable person and return it to them. I've had plenty of strings of bad luck after making choices I knew were wrong and felt as if it was me paying for the choices I made. I'm young too being only 19, it makes me smile when I see the reactions on peoples faces when I do something they don't expect of me. In a world of dishonest people, I wanna be the honest person. Even if that means I'm the only one. It doesn't matter whether I see the return of good karma or not, as long as I know I did the right thing.
