Would You Pick It Up?

Posted: November 1, 2014 in Articles

Yesterday, around our area, two trucks crashed into each other. One truck happened to be one of the armored trucks that carries money; the other one was a dump truck. The collision damaged the armored truck enough so that the money in the truck flew out all over the highway. People were quite happy about that. They stopped their cars and tried to pick up as much money as they could before the cops stopped them. I imagine some of them came out quite rich!

But then, it is kind of stealing money, isn’t it? At first, we thought we wouldn’t mind picking up a couple hundred dollars, but then we thought about it a bit and realized that it is someone else’s money, and it wouldn’t be right to pick it up.

    If I picked it up, it would be to help the guards responsible for the truck. Perhaps I would even take pictures of the people “stealing” the money. 😀

    Yes it is stealing but too many poeple don’t see it that way. My son once had two surfboards stolen from his car roof rack while he popped into a supermarket. One was specailly made for him and had a very distinctive pattern painted on it. Although reported to the police they were never seen again!
