Daily Prompt: While walking on the beach you stumble on a valuable object buried in the sand — say, a piece of jewelry or an envelope full of cash. What do you do with it? Under what circumstances would you keep it?
If it was a beach full of people, I think I would most definitely hand it in, probably to the life guards, (they always seem to know what to do). Seeing all those faces on a beach would make me feel guilty, and I would hope that if I lost something valuable, someone would hand it in for me.
However, if it were an empty beach, the story might be different. I think I’d be tempted to keep the treasure. Unless it was a lot of money – then I’d be scared of being dragged into some dodgy drug business and being chased by the police!
I’ve not been put in a situation like this yet – so I guess I won’t know what decision I’d make until it actually happens!
