The topic I picked is Memories…things from my past.A wave of nostalgia sweeps over me when I think about my childhood. I think of my favorite games…like Merlin and Pac Man.
Leg Warmers and Slouch Socks.
The Dukes of Hazzard and Alf.
The following questions were posted a few years ago on “That’s My Answer“: If you saw someone drop at $20 bill from their pocket, and they didn’t notice they’d dropped it, would you alert them to it? What if it was $1? Or some change? When is it finders keepers and their loss is your gain?
If I saw them actually drop the $20 I would pick it up and hand it back to them. If it was only a $1 and I saw them actually drop it I would still hand it back to them. I am not so sure if I would pick up any change that fell…unless it was quarters, then I would give that to them.
It is only “finders keepers” if no one is around to claim the money that is found. For example: A few years, while shopping in a local store I used the bathroom and found a $20.00 on the floor. I was alone in the bathroom and I had seen no one come out on my way in so I kept the $20. Yes, I thought about turning it in but then I thought about how anyone could claim the money and that maybe, just maybe the person I turned it in to would keep it. Was that bad? Wrong? Maybe.
I spent that $20 in the store. I just added it to my budget money and purchased an item or two I would not have been able to get otherwise.
