If you were at one of those self checkout things and saw that the person before you had left their change (about 20 dollars) inside and was walking away.. would you pocket it or tell them?

This happened in the cub the other day when iwas getting WIC.. THey guy ahead of me left his change.. I let him know .. he was so grateful to have it back... the lady behind me said i was crazy but i felt good cuz i was doing the right thing

  • I would tell him, because I would want someone to let me know and he probably needed it anyway.

  • I would let them know... In this day and age doing something bad will get you some bad Karma... Don't need that and also they probably need every last dime of their money!

  • I'd try to get their attention, and if I could not I would flag down a store employee to chase them down.

  • I would have also told him he left his change. If I got to the self checkout and the money was there with noone in sight, than I would have kept it.

  • I would tell them, and agree with most of the posters above. I have enough problems, I don't need bad Karma.

  • I would tell! I left mine one time and they didn't tell me and I was so upset!

  • Tell them. Peace of mind is worth a lot more to me than a stolen $20
