Would you turn in a wallet/money/jewelry if you found it somewhere? I have to be honest, or I feel terrible. I'm saying this because I believe I may have gotten more Eden Points today than the normal amount. I have only been logged on once, but I am pretty sure I have more than the daily limit today.
Absolutely without a doubt! I have done it before. In fact, I've never in my life came across a wallet or money and NOT turned it in or found the owner. That reminds me. About 3-4 months ago, my partner was cleaning up an apartment for a new resident to move in and found a wallet that had $5 in it and a little kid photo. My partner recognized the kid in the photo as a guy we see around all the time, one he went to school with. Keep in mind, my partner is 25 now and the guy who was once a kid who lost this wallet is around the same age! So he told me he was going to keep that wallet with its 20-something year old $5 bill in it and return it to the guy when we saw him out again. It wasn't a full month ago that we were pulling in CVS and saw the guy. My partner showed him the wallet and asked if it looked familiar. It was really awesome. To get your old wallet, one you had as a tiny child back so many years later would be so neat! Sorry, this discussion just brought that to mind.
I think my partner is a tad more honest than me. Last week, while on our vacation in Panama, me, my partner and my dad went out to Wal-Mart for freaking fishing supplies. These stupid little clear bubble things were left in the buggy and didn't get rung up. They were some fishing things. We spent SOOOOO long in that store that I was already mad and tired, so when we made it to the car and seen that the stupid 2 little 50 cent things were not rung up, I had to yell to keep my partner from going back and paying for the darn things! I was tired and mad. I wanted to get back to the motel and go to the hot tub. Lol.
So the next morning, what does he do? Goes straight in Wal-Mart and tells them to ring him up for the dang 2 fishing thingys! I honestly would've just forgotten about it.
Besides something like that though, I'm super honest. I'm just not the kind of person who could keep a wallet, money or anything at all that belonged to someone else. I will go to great lengths to return someone's belongings. It pays off too. I've had people return money I've dropped when they could've easily picked it up and I''d have never known. I'm usually good with keeping up with my things, especially money. But once about a year ago, I was walking the track in my area and this older couple was about half a football field behind me. I kept hearing them whistle and holler "hey, girl!" So I got scared and ran. Lol. When I rounded the track the second time, the man was standing there waiting. He had found my $40 that fell out of my pocket and went through all that trouble to get it back to me. So, it does pay off to be honest.
However, when it comes to EF points, I don't have a clue how much I earn or when. So I'd likely never notice. How can yoou accidentally get more like that though? I don't think it's possible, so if I were you I wouldn't worry too much about it. The EF system is set up to where you cannot go over so many points, so I really doubt that you're getting off with anything extra. I guess I could be wrong though. I don't know much. Lol. Heck, I don't even know what the daily limit even is.
In most cases though, I'm totally honest.
