Found an Iphone.. What do?

Frederick (@comanche) 10 years, 1 month ago

So while walking home from work, a guy in a car dropped his iphone out of the window. He couldnt stop to get it back ( busy street ) and the phone got ran over a couple times. When I crossed the street, I took it and looked to see if its owner was nearby to get it back, but I couldnt see him anywhere so I took it home. Surprisingly, it still works ( even tough locked ).The guy looked like a wealthy business man and drove a REALLY costy sport car.Would you keep the phone? Im pretty sure I wont keep it, even tough a part of me wants to.Just curious to hear everyones opinion on this. Have a nice day!

@comanche, in spite of me being on the other side of the class war, I think I would return it. Keeping it just doesn’t seem nice or honest, and if you start compromising that part of you, sooner or later you become just like the people you despise. I think giving it back would be the right thing to do.

If you feel that any part of keeping it is wrong then you can’t keep it. It is the equivalent of selling your character for an iphone, which would be a terrible trade. If you don’t at all feel that it is wrong to keep it, why not?

I feel like its wrong to keep it. Actually, its owner is currently on his way to pick it up. Personally, I wouldnt even be able to enjoy it knowing it isnt mine, especially since I didnt even need a phone :)

Why would you need to keep it? Even though he might be wealthy, it’s still his. I think you know the answer to your question!

@ojai, I do know the awnser to this question. As I said in the op, I was already going to give it back, but I was wondering what everyone’s opinion would be on this.

@comanche, An opportunity for gaining good Karma should always be taken.

This is just me, but if this was me I would make a small (small but noticeable) sign that says something along the lines of “if you were the guy that dropped your iPhone here recently and you were driving a really nice sports car, and you want it back, call the phone and I’ll answer it and we can meet up so you can have it back.” lol maybe include the exact kind or color of car if you noticed so when they call you, if it is the legit guy he would know what car he was driving. Weeds out imposters.
This is probably all way too much trouble and slightly naive, but… I would do it haha

@mercurial, If I lose my phone I’d probably call it. How would you return the phone if the owner doesn’t call you?
