Was reading this blog entry where the writer found a digital camera in the cab she was in. She surrendered it to the cab driver.
It was a rather admirable thing to do. But if I was in that situation, I would have kept it. Why? Because I have lost my wallet thrice, and I didn't get it back on all three occasions. That it pissed me off. So why should I care about someone who lost their digital camera, especially someone who I don't even know? Of course it works both ways. So if it ever happens to me, I would just accept it and blame my own carelessness, rather than lament the fact that no one was honest enought to return it.
I have to admit that it sounds like (and probably is) a selfish attitude to have. But past experiences have taught me that it is pointless to be nice to everyone. So now I reserve my caring for people who I really care about, people who I feel deserve it.
So what would you do in this situation?
