Thread: honesty....

  1. #1

    Default honesty....

    a cab driver returned $1.1m in cash to its rightful owners.

    if you found $10,000 worth of camera gear, would you do the same?

    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    if the owner is a millionaire spoilt brat, you wouldn't return it, and if the owner is a struggling professional photographer who just spent his life savings buying his camera gear, you would?

    Still hunting for that perfect lightweight, sea-resistant, tall and short tripod though. Don't think it exists.

    Look... you are a taxi driver... your cab number, ID all over the cab. Passenger comes into your cab and bo-chup bo-chup a couple of millions bucks left into some bag (trash bag?). You dare to take? Never die before is it?

    Did the police investigate the "rightful owners"? I mean who would be swinging around with $1.1 million in cash in some simple bag?

    I'll take it and fly to Bahamas with a few blonde girls and no one will ever hear about me again.
