There was a story in the local papers about a taxi driver who found 200 thousands dollars worth jewelries and return them to their owner. The jewelries' owner then offer him as a thank you 7,000$ but the taxi driver asked for 3000 NIS (about 750$) to pay for some debts he has.

I would have returned the jewelries of course (even though it's fun to fantasize about finding something very expansive *g*) but to be honest I'm not sure I would be able to refuse 7,000$
.

What about you? What would you have done in this situation?

Hmm...I probably would have accepted a thank you. I know if someone returned something incredibly valuable to me (whether personally valuable or financially valuable), I would want to thank them in a substantial way so I don't think there's anything wrong with accepting a thank you gift.

Honestly?? I would've returned the stuff and taken whatever money they were offering. I feel sort of greedy for saying that, but if they can afford to carry around $200,000 worth of jewelry they can probably afford the $7000 as a reward. jmo

I would have accepted the $7,000. Kathy is right. If somebody has that much in jewelry, then $7,000 is not that much to them.

I'd accept the thank you gift. But I think its really sweet that the cab driver only asked for a little bit.

I would have felt guilty for taking the reward money for about 2 seconds as I drove to Sephora.

I'd totally take the reward! No guilt! There's too many people out there who would just keep the stuff and pawn it... Nothing wrong with being rewarded for being an honest person!

I would have taken the $7,000. After all, if he couldn't afford to give that much then he wouldn't have offered it.
