Image via WikipediaDon't miss the Ball Bounces latest poll: what should you do if a cash machine overpays?
If you're a Carleton University student (see below), you keep it -- and tell your friends.
I once got a 10 dollar bill where it should have been a five. I went to the bank to pay back the 5. It caused a flap. It would have cost the bank more than $5 to "fix" the problem. I think in the end they let me keep it.
But I have no doubt I did the right thing in reporting it.
It's amazing how "do unto others (as you would have them do unto you)" and "love your neighbor" helps clarify moral situations. If a man is pursuing goodness, who wouldn't love the gospel? Who wouldn't love the Christ of the gospels?
And it sure beats "it's not what's right or wrong, it's what you can get away with" -- which is where our post-Christian Canadian culture seems to be heading.
And that's the way the I'm up $5 Ball bounces.
