People seem to think I'm one of those hard headed people who take a bunch of problems on. I usually try to remain as friendly as possible. Finally one day, while living at my dorm, someone left something out at the cafeteria that I knew could get stolen. I looked for the girl and no one knew who I was talking about. So I took the item to the lost and found and discovered that these people were not the most honest, so I kept it.
Finally near the end of a week of hunting down the girl and trying to post something about it and having it removed. I finally just found her crying, when I asked her what happened, it appeared her boyfriend's favorite MP3 player was stolen, it was an Ipod shuffle, and pretty small. After she described it to me, I brought her to the room and said, "I have been hunting for you for nearly a week, I was going to take it the police after today if I didn't find you."
She stopped crying and hugged me. "I can't believe people like you exist, why didn't you keep it?"
I laughed, "It isn't mine, I have no interest in other people's stuff. Just keep track of it, okay."
Since that day, I encouraged nearly everyone to be honest at my dorm and also at my work.
