    Hey to make a long story short, I took this guy home from the bar Saturday night, and then Monday morning I find $100 that he must have dropped in my bed. I doubt there will be anything between us besides a friendship, so should I keep the money or tell him that he left it? Advice is appreciated...

    Well, imagine that you went to his place instead and lost a hundred dollars there. He found it. Would you want it back?

    I would totally return the money. Imagine if it was your money, would you appreciate getting the $100 back? You would probably also think much better of your friend if he did. There is honor in it. Honesty is important.

    If you see him again ask if it's his and give it back if you feel so inclined (I'm not icon_smile.gif). If you don't see him, keep it. Were you both drunk? 'Cos he might not even know he lost it and thought he spent it.

    jim_e I have to ask you the same question. If you lost the 100 at his place, would you want it back?

    How would you feel about the guy later if you heard through the grape vine that your 100 was found by your one nighter or whatever and that he kept it, knowing it was yours? icon_wink.gif

    Sounds like a setup to see if you're honest before going further with the friendship.

    you even have to ask?icon_rolleyes.gif

    you already know the right thing to do.

    Why havent you already returned it?


    Or are you just hoping someone will say it is OK for you to keep it?

    This is an interesting question as a couple of days ago someone was suggesting people need religion to give them a sense of morality.

    I am an atheist.Yet the question does not even need to be asked. I already know what is right and my conscience dictates I would return it. (even if it meant going out of my way to do so.)


    So to give some insight into that other thread, then,

    I wonder if the OP believes in a God - and why that belief didn't already make the question unnecessary.

    (Not meaning to hijack but the religious insist on the moral imperative of religion.

    Maybe the OP would rather answer that privately (if at all)

    Maybe he was trying to leave you a thank-you gift, as one might an escort.

    Absolutely return it. You would want the same respect.

    Maybe it was a tip...or he thought you needed you bed sheets.... icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    Call him... if you have to ask us what would be the right thing to do...then you should check your Karma... icon_rolleyes.gif

    meninlove, i would want it back if i knew i lost it or if we pursue a friendship i think it would be a good gesture if he gave it back to me. if i didn't see him again, i'd chalk it up to careless and wouldn't care that i lost it so much.
