Categories: Life hacks

Children often pick up all sorts of little things on the street: toys, coins, beautiful leaves. But parents usually swore, forbidding "to drag any rubbish into the house."

Growing up, we are rarely tempted to pick up, for example, a broken toy. But what if you come across a lost jewel? Or a phone?

Here are 9 Things You Shouldn't Pick Up from the Ground:

Animals

If you see a hedgehog, a beautiful caterpillar or another representative of the fauna, be careful. Do not rush to pick them up or carry them home. Caterpillars can be poisonous, and hedgehogs carry a bunch of diseases that are dangerous to humans.

Even puppies and kittens can also be dangerous! Do you want to help them? Contact the animal rescue service.

Do not pick up a knife from the ground, even if it is very beautiful. The same applies to any items that can potentially be used as weapons.

Cops and convicts have a saying: "I picked up a knife — I took someone else's term." Do not leave fingerprints on an object that may appear in a criminal case! You never know who threw it out and why?

Wallets

Yes, yes, do not rush to pick up the wallet you found! Even if you want to take it to the police, it still does not guarantee your safety: this is how scammers often operate. First, an "eyewitness" appears, and then suddenly the "owner of the wallet" approaches - with accusations of theft.

Naturally, the wallet may also be stolen. In this case, there is nothing valuable in it anymore, and it will only bring you unnecessary risk.

Headphones

People often lose headphones on public transport and on the street. But do not give in to the desire to pick them up, even if they are very expensive!

Through someone else's headphones, you can easily get infected not only with streptococci and staphylococci, but even with furunculosis. You don't know who wore them!

Unidentified metal objects

The "mysterious" metal object may turn out to be a projectile. There are regular stories in the news about how someone found a grenade or a mine and decided to hand it over to the color meter. It usually ends badly.

Do a good deed: report such a find to the police.Walkie-talkies

The police do not recommend picking up walkie-talkies and any items resembling them. There are cases when such a find ended in an explosion — or a long showdown with the special services. If you suddenly find some kind of radio transmitter, it is better to inform the police.

Syringes

If this is not obvious to you, then know: it is absolutely impossible to touch abandoned needles and syringes with your bare hands! If you want to remove syringes left by some drug addicts from the entrance, put on gloves.

Of course, you will not get AIDS from them, but you can easily get viral hepatitis.

Jewelry

Picking up any gold jewelry from the ground, you risk becoming a victim of fraudsters.

This is a common wiring: suddenly a person appears out of nowhere and claims the find. He offers to divide the proceeds equally, but he doesn't have time to go to a pawnshop. You give him some money, and later, of course, you find out that it was just a fake.

In addition, there is always a risk that the jewel you found was stolen from someone. You don't want to explain yourself to the police later, do you?

SIM cards

You definitely don't need someone else's SIM card. The card is often thrown away by people who have problems with banks or the police. And thieves are eager to get rid of the SIM card from the stolen phone as soon as possible.

Therefore, picking up someone else's card, you can easily fall under suspicion!
