  • No, I don't like having things like that. Earning it feels good.

  • It depends where it was. If in a mall or something I would take it to the lost and found and ask what their policies were. If it was a phone I would call the emergency contacts and get the owners name. If a computer was laying on the side of the road (very unlikely) I would keep it.

  • I wouldn't keep it becuase for one, it's illegal and you could get tracked and get caught for stolen items. I would take it to the police department and turn it in to them.

  • No. Who knows maybe the person who lost it really needs it and cannot afford another one. I know if I lost something and someone found it , I would hope they would return it. Do unto others as you would have them do to you. It is always better to be honest. Just because you don't have one or can't afford it does not make it right.

  • I found a phone in a Walmart parking lot about a month ago and I turned it into customer service hoping someone was looking for it.

  • Probably not. I've had my own stuff taken and I know how much it sucks.

  • I would give it to the lost and found, or whatever depending on where I found it. I definatly would not keep it, I still think it is considered stealing.
