this line makes me think the author wouldn't have returned it

Thanks to the honest actions of the young teenager, that wasn’t necessary

i went to the lost and found at a ski resort in tahoe, and the guy behind the desk told me about a kid returning a wallet that had 2k in it the day before...he said the guy came in when the kid was there...just said thanks, and that was it...i think if you get back $2,000, you have to at least give a small reward

Are you talking about me ? Anything short of not returning it would be stealing .

did you write the article?

if you did, i don't mean any offense, it's that one line just the "which wasn't neccesary"...seemed strange to me, it really stuck out in my opinion

Sorry ! When you said author. I thought you meant of the post.

I'm hoping he meant that it wasn't neccesary to reward the kid.

LOL Go read it again :-) He is is saying that the cancellation of the trip was not necessary now that the wallet was returned. :rolleyes:

See my post above, do they not teach comprehension in schools any more?

Don't know, I haven't been there in a long time. To many spaces for me.

But you are a bit of a snob :lol:

And I guess you must be psychic to reach that conclusion when you do not know me. Perhaps you should concentrate on more normal but important things like learning to read before you demonstrate to the world your paranormal talents. ;-)a

So I guess you must be feeling pretty good then.

Perhaps we are in the middle of a huge misunderstanding here though. Given your proven inability to understand even the simplest of written English, I guess you may not know or understand what snob means.

The sun is shining (for a change), I've had my coffee, taken my meds, batteries charged up for the camera and you keep proving my point.

So yes , I feel pretty good.

Another word does come to mind , but i'll pass on that :lol: !

Have a good day, Sir !

I'm amazed at the number of people on this thread that would "take the money and run." It's very apparent that the disconnect of the internet makes people think it's OK to steal.

Being raised in a different time, I feel differently. There have been occasions where mistakes have been made in my favor and I have gone out of my way to correct them.

Recently I was the victim of identity theft and a number of products were purchased using my credit card number. For some reason, I can't figure out the products were sent to me instead of the thief. I made several attempts to return the products to the companies, but in every case I was told to keep them. Most of them were given away because they were stuff we couldn't use. I got my money back from the credit card company...
