Dalai Lama Dilema; Need Your Thoughts Here!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Having just returned from a meeting with the Dalai Lama… oh gosh its only been 48 hours … yikes….

Question! You end up with an additional GPS from the big box store. You’re pretty sure you didn’t steal it, at least not intentionally, but there it was in your back seat when you got home. So you paid for one, got two … do you:

1. Return it because you somewhat believe in that burning in hell stuff?

2. Give it to some lost person which should counter-act #1, right?

3. Assume it was a two-fer sale and all is well.

4. Assume it was an act of God, possibly even a miracle.

What would you do?

Tell the truth and you can walk free in spirit.  Here is what I would do, go back to the store and explain what happened and ask them to tell you what the situation is.  If you do not, might you not be a theif? 

What if we always communicated the facts to each other and how nice would that be?

If it makes you feel better just send it to me and I'll look at it as blessing from God and you can rest in the fact you helped someone else. LOL

Otherwise do what your heart tells you.

Is this one of those psychological tests?  I don't do well on tests!!!!  But, I would return it - just couldn't live with myself if I kept it.

Return it. With your receipt saying you only paid for one. Mistakes happen.

Let's say I go on a home visit with you and pick up your purse by accident.  I don't like the house and never see you again.  Do I get to keep your purse?  It must have been that God wanted my to have your purse and it's contents.  mmmmm?

Good Karma and all folks thanks for commenting and NO I would not keep it.  I paid for the extra one and am saving it for the 3 rd sunday in June (Father's day).  It was suppose to be tongue in cheek, but only people who know me realized it.  Thanks for commenting though.

Karen,

Call the store and tell them the story.  Then take it back if it's not a two-fer.

Taking it back will bring you good karma and a clean conscience.  That's worth more than a free GPS!  As my friend Becca would tell you... "You done good, kid!"

I think everyone returns it because who could use two of them?  I would also return it and the first one, I have one built into my car!  Then I would take the cash and buy some gas.
