    1. Friend who lives out of town gives me stick edger he found three years ago and never used it. Kept it in his barn.

    2. I get edger, it does not run. Duh!

    3. I work on edger. I get It running.

    4. While working on edger, I notice curled up sticker on shaft.

    5. I uncurl sticker to find name of company where purchased.

    6. Conscience starts working on me.

    7. Call company to see if serial# can be matched to owner.

    8. Company calls back to say they cant match serial#.

    9. Conscience clear.

    10. Now worried about friends conscience.

    Could you explain #10 in more detail. I think I missed it somehow.

    I don't think he could have missed that sticker and not tried to find the owner. I could be wrong though. I didn't think at the time to ask him if he had tried to locate the owner.

    Your out your time. I would give it back. Ever had some loser come up to you trying to sell something he found? Happens all the time here, and i tell them what losers, and other things they are. Wouldnt you be happy if it were you? What comes around goes around is just a saying, but if you dont give it back and someone steals something of yours, dont whine.
