I found myself in an interesting situation last Friday night. Here’s what happened … from there, I’m interested to know what *you* would have done if you were in my shoes. Tomorrow I’ll post what I did. Ok? Ready to play along?
9pm at night or so last Friday night I was leaving the office. There were still some co-workers at my office and a few other cars in the parking lot. Even though I was parked right next to the door, I was walking very cautiously because I noticed a pick-up truck further out in the parking lot and someone was sitting on the bed of the truck. A car was pulling in to the parking lot and driving over to the truck to pick the guy up. (He sounded a bit drunk and rowdy too.) As I paused to make sure I had my keys in one hand and was ready to go quickly to my car, I noticed that there was a black laptop bag sitting next to the large (3 foot tall) flower planter outside of the office door. A lot of people stop and stand by this planter while they smoke, so I’m sure someone has set the bag down and forgotten it. The car leaves with the guy in it, so I’m alone. I called my co-worker, Brian, and told him about the bag. I opened it up to discover there was a laptop inside, along with a $350 check and a pad of blank checks with a name, address and phone number on it.
So … you take it from there. What would you do?
