what would you do?
Answer us honestly: If you found a box full of bills in the new apartment you just moved into, would you return it to the previous owners or take it and its contents to yourself?
This is exactly the dilemma that user Mumsnet got into, which she solved quite quickly when she decided to take the straight path and look for the previous owner.
On the net a little less we praised her for the decision.
The woman who did not give her name said that after moving house, she decided to renovate the kitchen and replace it with a new one.
When she threw away her old kitchen, one of the renovators found a box there.
When she opened the box she found that it was full of bills.
She said there was so much money there that she did not know what to do with it.
She wrote: "Today after evacuating my old kitchen, our renovator found a hidden box containing £ 4,000 in cash" (about NIS 17,000). She added: "We informed the lawyer who ran the sale (it was a house sale ).
What do you think will happen? "

What would you do with the money?
Taking for ourselves, obviously
Taking on ourselves with some guilt
Straight return to its owner
Mumsnet users were surprised to find it difficult to report the money.
"Honestly, I would keep my mouth shut and invest the money in the new kitchen," one wrote and another added: "You should have kept quiet! You are buying the house as it is! This money is yours now."
Another added: "Now there will be a battle between the veteran owners over this. Wrong, darling."
Few chose to praise her for the honesty: "I do not know an honest person like you," one reporter and another added: "I would also announce this. Hope you can eventually keep the money to yourself. Honest people get their reward."
