  • What would you do RE: found cash

    Scenario:

    I walk into the building my office is in today and see two $20 bills sitting on the ground. This building is shared between maybe a dozen offices.

    Do I a) contact the building management and see if someone lost the cash or b) pocket it ?

    This seems pretty obvious to me but I pose it to the Wheat.

    The Fates have smiled upon you son. It is not wise to reject a gift from the gods.

      The correct answer is A but it would be really tempting to go with B.

        I would do option A. I'm a big believer in karma. It's only $40; it's not going to have a huge positive impact on your life anyway. And, really, the chances of somebody filing a claim about missing money in that exact amount are pretty slim.

          What is the monetary value that it's okay to pocket? Is it small like $1-$5? What if it is large say $100?

            This is true. If there were a wallet or anything that I found around it that was more than just cash I would 100% turn it in.

                  How many of you pick up a penny and consider that good luck. He just got 4,000 times the luck.

                        Always keep found cash, unless it's obvious whose pocket/wallet it fell out of.

                        I'd score it and not give it a second thought. Yes, I believe in some thing like karma. And that's my reward for all the good shit I do daily. And some poor sucker's punishment.

                            you think that the building manager is going to try and pursue the owner?

                            more likely than not, you'll be gifting him $40

                              No no no. I'll keep the money, tell them I found it and wait to see if anyone contacts THEM to say they lost it.

                              Of course, even if someone lost it they wouldn't do this and I'll end up keeping the money, but at least I don't feel dirty about it.
