The day I became a thief

I found a 20 euro bill on the train. 

If something like that happens, what do you do?

Ask around if someone lost 20 euros, risking that someone will say: 'yes, me!' - and lies? Or put it in your pocket?

I put it in my pocket.


It looked kind of walked on and dirty anyway and no one seemed to miss it. I wondered if there were hidden cameras or something. Would someone come up to me in a minute and ask me what I did with the 20 euro bill I just found? I already felt guilty. Maybe I should give it to charity.


The train went really slow. I wanted to get out. 

Was this the day I became a thief?
