Ethical question

Let's say that there was a secretary in your office who retired over a year ago. Some of the things she left at her desk are still hanging around, though most of the useful stuff was scavenged long ago. One of the remaining items is a jar of ink for a particular style of fountain pen. (The secretary in question was a fountain pen fanatic.) You happen to own the same kind of fountain pen. You are not in touch with former secretary, though, with some effort, you could figure out how to contact her.

Is it ok to take the ink home?

Perhaps you don't care about that and want to know if I've heard from "that guy." The answer to that is no.

Luckily, I just don't care.

UPDATE: I just got an email from "that guy." No phone call yet.

Grateful for: Friday.
