Not sure I could be that honest.....

So dude buys a chest of drawers in an estate sale.

For less than a hunnerd bucks.

Decides to load it into his truck.

Hears a strange rattling sound.

Investigates.

Finds a secret drawer with thousands of dollar of gold, silver, and jewels.

GIVES IT BACK TO THE SELLER....

Now, I am honest. I (generally) do the Right Thing, simply because I gotta look at myself every morning (it ain't pretty) when I shave, and I'd like to be able to look the dude in the mirror in the eye....

But I'm not so sure that I could do what Mr Knodell did.

Kudos to him.

For me I think it would depend on the circumstances. If the estate sale was organized by someone who'd bought the property at auction and was just trying to unload the contents, I'd probably just keep it. If it was a widow selling off her possessions that she couldn't fit into the retirement home she was moving into, I don't think I could live with myself if I didn't give it back.
