Are these the Coast’s most honest teenagers?
ARE Josh Pulford and his friends the Sunshine Coast's most honest teenagers?
Or would most young people react the same way they did when they found a local woman's phone and debit and credit cards?
The valuables belonged to Daily newspaper sales manager Lisa Bathersby, who left them behind after an outdoor gym session at Alexandra Headland.
She thought she'd seen the last of her $1000 iPhone 6 and the cards, particularly as the "tap and go" card could be used without a pin number.
But she hadn't counted on the honesty of Josh and his friends.
"It never occurred to us not to return it," the Immanuel College student said.
"I know I would be pretty devo if I left my phone and someone didn't hand it in.
"You've got to think about how other people feel."
Josh was celebrating his 16th birthday when one of his friends discovered the phone sitting on a bench.
They were trying to work out how to contact the owner when the phone rang.
On the other end of the line, Mrs Bathersby assumed the honest person was someone older.
So she was surprised when she arrived at the bluff to find her Good Samaritans were a group of teenagers.
The only thing they had taken was a "selfie" photo for her to remember them by.
"There's only a small percentage that would do the opposite," Josh said.
"I lived in South Africa as a kid and we got broken into a lot.
"I believe stealing is one of the worst things someone can do, so we never even considered keeping them."
As for Mrs Bathersby, she's impressed by the calibre of the youngsters.
"It's good to see there are still a lot of good kids out there," she said.
