I need some ethics advice. An overnight visitor leaves a iphone charger in the guest bedroom. I should:
A: Fed-Ex it them immediately
B: Email them that I found it and offer to mail it back
C: Pretend you didn’t see it and leave it for the next visitor
D: Put it in the kitchen drawer with the iphone chargers from past decades
E: Convert the guest bedroom into a man cave befitting
of your past life choices …
E. pitch it in the fireplace or rushing river, it is the work of the devil!
Keep it, label it as property of the rental, leave it for guests.
B) if you are normal and high functioning

This has been known for eons, but we don’t hear much talk about that. We should.
