What would you do?

Yesterday DD15 and I were out shopping. When we left Dollar Tree right next to our car in the parking lot was someone's debit card. I took it back inside the store and they told me there had been a woman looking for it, but she left. I took it to the bank where the card was from and turned it in. The teller was floored that I had done that. I didn't think anything of it, so now I'm wondering what would you do if you found it? Do you really that it's that uncommon to turn somthing like that in?

  • You know, I found a phone bill with the $100 cash in it. I called the number to let them know I was mailing it back to them. They were surprised! I would have done exactly what you did! It's sad that people think it's a rarity.

  • I would definately return it, Not a second thought, I had my camcorder returned after leaving it in a hotel parking lot, I never imagined I would see it again!

  • I would have done the same. I found a credit card once and called the credit card company to tell them so they could cancel the card. They were shocked.

  • I would have done the same thing as you. Nice job! And you taught your son so much by doing it. So many would just taken it and use it.

  • I have done similar things. You taught your child a valuable lesson because they learn from example.

  • I don't know if I would have taken the card directly to the bank, but I probably would have called the bank to let them know and then mail the card in.
