Money money money

We all like money and would probably even like more of it but if you found your bank left open and empty what would you do?


Discussion


1)How honest are you?
2)Have you ever broken the law or a rule? Why?
3)How do you feel about criminals?
4)Would you break the law if you could get away with it?
5)Would you be able to deal with the guilt?


What would you do if these 3 'windows of opportunity' presented themselves?


1) You access a public computer and someone has ebay account open.

2) You find a wallet with a credit card and the pin number. 

3) You go to your bank in the evening and the door is unlocked.
