Problem: Everyone at your school has a really cool phone but it's too expensive for you to buy. While at the mall you see that the very same phone you want is just lying there on one of the benches. There's no one else looking, what do you do? by Mind Map: Problem: Everyone at your school has a really cool phone but it's too expensive for you to buy. While at the mall you see that the very same phone you want is just lying there on one of the benches. There's no one else looking, what do you do?

1. What should I do?

1.1. 1) Leave the phone lying there. If I won't take it some else will.

1.2. 2) Pick it up and slip it into my bag. No one's watching and it's not stealing right? Obviously the owner doesn't want it if he is leaving it here.

1.3. 3) Pick it up and take it to the front desk and turn it in. The rightful owner will probably come looking for it when he realises its gone.

1.4. 4) Take the phone with you and try to find who the owner is and return it to the.

2. Consider the Consequences

2.1. 1) It might be taken before the owner gets it. It might be broken or damaged. There is a tiny change that the owner will get it back before anything happens

2.2. 2) One of the cameras could catch you taking the phone and you could end up being charged for theft if the owner finds out. BUT you could be let up scott-free and show up at school with that cool new phone you 'needed'

2.3. 3) The phone will be returned to its rightful owner, but you won't get the phone you want so much.

2.4. 4) Is stealing this phone, at a young age, worth going to jail and that being on your record. It would effect what colleges you could get into

2.5. 5) The owner would most likely thank you because even if you give it to the front desk, the owner might not think to look their and never get their phone back

3. Identify your Values

3.1. 1) Do you REALLY need that phone is it important in you life. Will it have a long-term impact

3.2. 2) Will this decision haunt you for the rest of you life until the point of insanity and you track down the person who owns the phone and return it so you can go to heaven.

3.3. 3) When you return it will it make you feel good, it will also give people another reason to trust you.

3.4. Would you be able to live with yourself knowing that you stole a phone of great worth, shouldering that kind of weight is hard.

4. Decide and Act

4.1. After considering your option the best option would be to bring it to the front desk because if you take the phone and try to find the owner you might not be able to and you would have a phone, that you can't use because it isn't yours as well as you would feel guilty.

5. Evaluate the Results

5.1. How did your decision work out?

5.1.1. Did it make you feel good because you didn't steal the phone?

5.2. How has it affected your life?

5.2.1. Did you have to shoulder all that guilt through out your life?

5.3. How has it affected others?

5.3.1. The owner might of gotten his phone back and now you know that if people ask you they can trust you.

5.4. What did you learn?

5.4.1. Did you learn that the world is not just about phones and the newest trends?

5.5. If you could do it again what would you do differently?

5.5.1. I wouldn't do it different because the outcome was good.
