"The businessman arrived at the Treasury Department carrying a suitcase stuffed with about $5.2 million. The bills were decomposing, nearly unrecognizable, and he asked to swap them for a cashier's check. He said the money came from Mexico..."

Long but interesting read. I know I'd like to find $20M in my basement, by the alfalfa field, where I pulled a tree up, from inheritance! \:\)

I found $200 on the ground in front of the ATM once. Someone must have been drunk. I was too stupid to keep it. I put it in the night deposit with a note, and of course the next day people told me I should have kept it and called the bank to say that if someone reported that amount of money missing, THEN I could give it up.

I found $100 in a parking lot once.

I wasn't about to go around asking "Did you lose $100?" So we sat in the parking lot for a while to see if someone was wandering around looking for something... nobody ever did so we had to keep it.

When I was 15 I went on a trip for school to Florida. At a restaruant I found some $425-ish dollars and some change on the floor just under one of the tables. As a typical kid, I was like "WOW!" (heck, as an adult, I'd be the same). Anyway, I could see the cashier and just watched both the table where I spotted the money, and the cashier. Sure enough, about 20 minutes later (after my friends and I had spent the money in our minds) this guy comes in with, as I remember it, a British accent. He said to the cahier that he was missing his "pocket change"... I stepped forth and asked him how much he was missing, and he thought that it was about $400, so I gave it all to him... He said thank you, and left. While I didn't expect it, I was kind of hoping for a reward for being honest and giving him his money back, but alas, I just got a thank you.

I'd like to have that kind of "pocket change" everyday.

Today's moral lesson:

Doing the right thing should be reward enough.



As Tom would say, "Reflect!" \:\)

Still, if it had been my $425 that had been returned, I'd have felt obligated to give the little bugger a reward.

Nick, if you can find my pocket change, I'll gladly give you 15%!

Sean apparently has me confused with bbigwyrz.

Nick, I'd refuse the 15% of JP's lint, if I were you.
