While parking late at night, you slightly scrape the side of a Porsche. You are certain no one else is aware of what happened. The damage is minor and would not be covered by insurance. Would you leave a note?
There was a time when I would say no, I wouldn’t. My logic would be that I can’t afford to get some stranger’s Porsche fixed out of pocket. Also, over the years, I’ve gotten dozens of scratches on my various cars and have never received a note from anyone. But… my conscience would kill me forever. So… I would leave a note.
…with a fake phone number. BOOM!
Would you take the time to leave a note on the expensive car?
