79. Nobody in their right mind would throw away intact credit...
Edited on Tue Apr-18-06 02:53 PM by Solon
cards, nor an intact Driver's License either, using common sense like that, the RIGHT thing to do would be to return it intact. Not to mention that Dumpster diving does NOT involve getting wallets out of the trash for cash, obviously the wallet was MISTAKENLY thrown in the trash, somehow. She was a janitor, so it is certainly possible that it fell out of her pocket and into the trash, in that case it isn't discarded by her, but lost. Anyone who takes advantage of that is a thief, plain and simple.

Dumpster diving, to me, is a noble activity, working as a trashman a few times, and having friends who cleaned offices and stuff, we had access to all sorts of stuff, electronics, computers, etc. That is not stealing, because its obvious that that stuff was TRASH to someone, but a fixable CD player is treasure to me.
