dear person who dropped a wad of cash

i'm sorry you dropped your wad (wad = $7). really, i am. i feel bad that you were probably really bummed to realize that you lost whatever cash you had in your pocket. i picture you rooting through your jeans and car to no avail. at least it was "only" 7 dollars and not $107, right?
i found your wad of cash lying in the street in reno. and so far, you've bought me 2 chai tea latte's from starbucks and paid blake's allowance. so i just wanted to thank you! you're the coolest stranger ever!

MMmmmmmmmmmm. Chai lattes. At least it went to a good cause. How cool is that to find 7 free dollars. The most I have ever found was a $20 bill on the floor at a movie theater once and my mom made me hand it over to the skeevy looking high school kid ticket taker, who I'm SURE kept it in the drawer up front until someone claimed it. Yeah. Ehem.

That's cool. I once found $40 in a toy store. They were very nice to buy Maya some new Leap Frog disks.

It's nice of you to thank them. ;)

Blech. Oh sorry, I was just remembering your chai comment. Have a great weekend.

You're so cool Jenn.

I once lost $25 in college - had it stuffed in the side of my shoe when I was out bar-hopping on Halloween. I tried to think about how much someone else was enjoying the drinks that $25 bought.

I love people who give me money, even if it's by mistake.

I once found $7.00 on the floor of the video store-thanks whomever for the two DVD rentals!

I think I've found maybe $5 once but I know I've lost way more than that.

Jodi said...

that was my life savings I'll have you know! :0 And you drank chai lattes. Oh well, at least my retirement money went for a good cause. (hehehehheeh)

You just stole my kid's allowance! Hope you feel good about your latte's now! They were saving for a new pair of shoes and some food - they've been walking to school with just socks and some plastic bags over their feet and picking crusty bread from trashcans for the last two weeks...

Simply shameless!

Let's here it for the cool strangers!

That story reminds me of a couple weeks ago when I had just told Drew he wasn't getting allowance that week because he needed to shape up. We walk in 7-Eleven and he finds $10.00 on the floor, which the cashier told him he could keep!!! Way more than his allowance. THANKS kind stranger...so appreciate you going over my head.

Ha ha! At least you're admitting it! I love the rare occasions when I find cash (like on the street) and there's no possible way to return it or "leave" it somewhere safe for the owner. Then it's mine! All mine! :)

Well Spent!!
I once found $300 in an envelope at an ATM and being the Canadian I am I waited till the bank opened (the next day) and went back and told the bank where I found it and I wanted to make sure the owner got it. (I AM A FREAK ABOUT KARMA) so they told me they could not "take" the money they would hold it and if no one came looking within 90 days they would call me and the money would be mine.
They called 3 months later and the money was mine..
Weird huh? (yeah I am a bit crazy returning $300 cash but I was SOOO worried I would be caught on film through the stupid cameras on the bank machines)

Some time ago my boyfriend and I went to do our grocery shopping.

As we entered the shop I felt something hit my feet. It too was a wad of cash.

After chasing the woman we thought it might have been, it turned out that it wasnt her, so we split the money between us and her.

It was R200 in total. (which I think is approximately $28 - I think. $14 for her and $14 for us).

Although, come to think of it, I dont know why she should have gotten any since we picked it up.

I think we were too concerned with being seen with a wad of cash in our hands and having the person who lost it wrongfully accusing us of stealing from her.

Oh well, it paid for our groceries.

Heres the actual post about it if you're interested.
