READERS DISCUSS: Would a Rocky person hand back a wallet?

GLADSTONE residents were put to the test when 10 wallets were dropped around town to see how many would be returned and how many would be intact.

The Bulletin asked readers via Facebook: If we did this in Rockhampton, what do you think the results would be?

Here are some of the responses:

Debra Abbott - I see it on Facebook all the time someone trying to return lost items so give Rocky a break there are some good people out there.

Awhina J Williams - 8 were returned in Gladstone which was awesome to see. Hope the other 2 feel bad now knowing it was a test

Simone Lee Muckert - 2 out of 10 would return it. This town has changed over the last 10 years.

Loz Kelly - Rockhampton = no wallets returned!

Daniel Harkin - You should actually done it instead.of writing about it. Lol

Jody Bayntun - Well if I found one I'd return it.

Karen Ricks - depends on who picks it up.

Anita Louise - None would be returned ! Try it

Rebbecca Jones - Hrmmmmmm mine was taken the day before New Years eve, and I'm still waiting on it to be returned...

Dane Devize Heslin - I remember finding my old bosses wallet once, stacked with 50s, 100s & credit cards. Got a thanks then a sacking shortly after due to younger staff. All good, got a better job, hopefully though he dies a slow death of lung cancer.

Donna Roberts - 8/10 not bad going for a town the size of Gladdy good going to the 8, Karma will prevail to the 1 that had no money, and am glad I'm no friend of the last
