First, the background:
Earlier this week, a pair of sisters in Utah were heading to their car as they left a Macey’s grocery store (not to be confused with the similar-sounding Macy’s department store) and discovered a plain duffel bag containing around $17,800 in cash and nothing to identify the owner. Did they go on a shopping spree? Bury it in the back yard? Nope; they called the police.
[I]t would be a difficult choice. On one hand, turning it in would be the right thing to do.
On the other hand, that’s almost a year and a half of mortgage payments… but in the end, my stupid conscience would get the best of me, and I’d turn in all $10,000 of it.
Oh, by the way, they did find the owner.
