    Default What would you do?

    As the title states, what would you do?

    Around 3am the neighborhood dogs were all going crazy. Nothing too unusual for here given the neighbours' "business" they run from home... Anyway...

    This morning on our front lawn, there's a shopping bag (15c woolies plastic ones) full of photos, family photos,school photos.... for children who attend/ed our child's school (in the same uniform)

    We called the local police who told us to find the owner, or bin them.... they didn't want them. So helpful.

    One of them on the top, was a family photo metal magnet. We've got them for ds, so I knew by turning it over we'd find a name as they're engraved with the name, grade and school on the back.

    Interestingly enough, ds invited the child named to his birthday last year and we gave them a lift home. They *lived* in a court around the corner, about 700-800m walk away.

    We aren't sure if they still live there as it was 18 months ago, but we know of someone who MIGHT know if they do still live there, or not, and possibly where or how we could find them.

    So... what would you do?

    Are these people you want to get involved with?
    If you’re comfortable with that I would seek them out.
    If they are somehow shady or not someone you want to talk to I would just leave them where they are. I might make sure they were protected from the weather though. And wait for someone to come back.
    Seems someone has had an argument hey.

    I don't know the parents at all....so I'm not sure what they're like. I'm not sure if they were going to our neighbors house to conduct a business "transaction". If that's the case I'd probably prefer to not engage because they could potentially be unstable...

    But it's also highly likely they were just walking past and dropped the bag too.

    The child was a bit reserved at the party initially (but what 7/8yo isn't when meeting new people), polite and well mannered and relaxed quickly.

    Yeh I would just be worried if I moved them and someone came back they might come to your door.
    I get funny about things like this because people these days are not all nice and polite.

    Do you know the photos have anything to do with the people next door?

    Could the photos have been taken in a robbery and dumped?

    Either take to school or leave them.

    It would be an odd thing to bring to a ‘business transaction’. I also think they may have been dumped after a burglary. I’d just go around the the house where they used to live and drop them off. Or take them to the school if you feel more comfortable doing that.

    I agree with handing it into the school. Don’t say you found it at the front of your house, just drop it off at the office and tell them you found it on the road and leave it at that.
