MORAL DILEMMA

Postby lovelybaby » Fri Dec 23, 2005 2:27 pm

You find a wallet with 50000$ and the identification card of its owner. This's the exact amount of money you need to pay an operation that's critical for your daughter. She needs that operation to survive. What do you do with the money

I am trying to imagine that situation but it's so hard to put myself in the shoes of someone in those circumstances. I was going to say I would immediately return the money, but I don't have any children so I can't say :roll:

Without hesitation I would keep the money. If I didn't have a daughter that needed the operation I would take it back. I know that is terrible but if my daughter was in that position, and luck had it happen that way, I would take advantage of it. :oops:

Me too. I would let the owner know how I used that money and return it as soon as possible. :lol:
