A homeless man in Austria has handed back 7,000 Euros (£5,700) he discovered on the street over Christmas.

Hermann Schleichert made the honest decision to give the four-figure sum to police in Vienna, despite only having 80 cents (66p) and an empty packet of cigarettes to his name.

The owner of the money better give him some, otherwise he goes onto my list of being a dickcunt

Great guy. I found a fiver at the foot of the bar the other day, and assumed it had fallen from the girl who had just ordered's wallet, so picked it up and went to give it to her. Don't think it was hers.

I would buy that homeless man a nice, full packet of cigs if he returned me my money.

Not really good for him, though. I mean, if he's happy with himself then sure, good for him...

But I can see him kicking himself later for handing it in. Half of me hopes there was actually $10000 and he split it 70/30.

I disagree.

I don't condone theft, but I don't condemn opportunism.

EDIT: Opportunism has negative connotations. I will endeavour to find a more suitable synonym.

Even if he's homeless? I see no intregrity lost if he would've kept the money seeing as how he's living on the street with what I assume not a dollar in the pocket whatsoever.
With that money he might very well be able to change his life and in the coming future pay back either this specific owner of the money or society in general.

And this. I now have proof that there is still good, honest people out there and I admire his principles.

What if those principles are what's going to kill him? Would the action still be the right one?

Ahhh, a really nice change from all of the shitty news that keeps coming up here

Even though a lot of you say he should've kept it, I think that guy is a great, true and honest person. Many should learn a lesson from him

This basically.

Yes, honour and doing the right is always desireable to an extent. But this guy is homeless, living in the street and has no money, job or food. I don't think his first priority should be to be honourable in such a situation.

So you would only do the right thing if it suits you?

He's not living in the street. He's staying at a homeless shelter. Read the article properly.

Honour is a better friend than cynism.


What is cynical about wanting the homeless man to keep the money and sort out his life rather than him returning the money to a guy who didn't even notice he was missing 7000 dollars?


Quote by stealstrings

I don't live on the street and I have a job/school to go to and have food, heat and money. I don't have a reason to think of myself in such a situation. I've come over a couple of wallets last summer, it didn't strike me even for a second to keep either of them.

If I however lived on the street and found some money I would keep it to be able to feed myself and hopefully keep myself warm.

And to answer your question with a statement. I believe in doing what suits the society the most and I believe he could pull himself out of the streets by keeping the money and in the future pay back to society with a lot more than what he kept.

And being able to feed yourself, and buy a warm coat so you neither starve nor freeze is better than honour.

Who cares about the honour of a homeless man. When he's death he can't really enjoy having this honour and the rest of the world will have forgotten him tomorrow.

Oh my golly. By all means then. He's obviously well off.

I do admire him but I do believe he should've used the money on himself to give himself an easier life and possibly be able to find a job and pull himself out of there. Honour is not going to save him from dying.

He doesn't live on the streets.

He had been staying at a homeless shelter and hostel for recovering alcoholics


But yeah ok. That's what you would do and you have every right to live your life how you want to.
