i’m all for being a positive role model for the youngins,
but this story was rather ridiculous.
a cleaning service worker in a florida airport found an ipad and 13k in cash.
he does the right thing, but…
Is the “doing the right thing” really worth it?…
Patrick Morgan was working an early shift at the airport last month when he came across the iPad that had been left behind at a bar in one of the terminals. When he opened the case, he spotted the big wad of cash.
“I opened it first and I see the money and I closed it back,” he said.
Morgan, of Patrick’s Cleaning Service which works for Sunshine Cleaning Systems Inc., immediately turned in the iPad and cash to the airport communications center and Broward Sheriff’s Office substation.
Minutes later, the owner, who had returned from a trip to Las Vegas, came back to the bar and Morgan told him where he could find the money and iPad.
The iPad owner gave Morgan a $60 reward, which Morgan passed on to a homeless woman.
At Wednesday’s ceremony, the Broward County Aviation Department honored Morgan for his honesty and hard work, and Sunshine Cleaning awarded him $625, which is equal to one week paid vacation. He says he’ll keep it.
that reward was cheap.
if that worker did not find that ipad and money,
someone else would have spent that money in a super walmart,
while looking for the sale items on the walmart app.
(be careful in stealing apple products because they can track the device)
i do appreciate the man’s honesty in turning it in.
some people would have looked for cameras and took it.
i guess dooing good did get him paid more at work.
