ethical question

Evaluate the ethics of this hypothetical situation:

In a cubicle in the same row as yours in work, there once sat a temp or intern. She was from a different department and placed there because there was room; you don't even know who she worked for. A large gift bag was placed in her cubicle, but she left the job before picking it up.

A month later, the gift bag is still there. At what point do you feel ethically comfortable with:

a. looking in the bag to see what's in there
b. taking something from the bag

Feel free to use the variables "time" and "hunger" in your answer.
