Default Oh man, being honest SUCKS.....

The FedEx guy usually arrives at work around noonish, but today he was late. I was talking with him when he did show up, and he (jokingly) says, "Hey, the last delivery I had wasn't there, looks like the place is shut down. Want their stuff?" I laugh, and tell him no thanks, that'* okay.....then he rolls the door up on the van.....You know the old saying, "I coulda had a V8"? Well, today I coulda had FOUR three-rotor Mazda motors, complete from pan to intake, all brand-new. Plus a pair of FD transmissions. And a dash for a 81 RX-7, NEW IN THE FACTORY SHIPPING CRATE.

Well I'm sure he wouldn't have given it to you anyway. But that would be a cool score if you could get away with it, though it obviously wouldn't be right.

If it sounds too good to be true, then it usually is. Think about this:

The company that sent the items through UPS sends their Invoice for said parts, only to find out that the business is closed only to put it back on the UPS guy who now has to account for thousands of dollars worth of stuff, which then points back to you since I doubt the UPS guy would risk losing his job because of something Illegal.

It all comes back to bite ya in the *** sooner or later. Now if you found them sitting in a deserted area for three days, then it might be a different story
