“Yes, I have. I found a $20 bill in a parking lot. I was 7 or 8 years old, so I was pretty excited about it.”

“Yes, actually, I have. When I was a kid I found $200 on the sidewalk. I went and bought a Nintendo with it, as that was the big thing to have at the time.”

“Just loose change; nothing great. I would probably try and return it if I did. I know I would want someone to do the same for me.”

“Yeah. I just recently found $2. I gave it back to a guy that was up on some scaffolding who said it fell out of his pocket.”

I found several bills totaling to just under $30 on campus at my undergraduate school. I turned it into the lost and found. No one claimed it after about 6 weeks, so they gave it back to me and I took my girlfriend out to eat with it.

My girl-friend and I were at a concert in Wichita (The Firm) lots of years ago. The crowd got drunk and ugly so we left early. As we were walking to our car, we found a $100 bill nicely rolled into a tube. Bonus!

We spent the night in Wichita and had a big steak dinner.

I've learned one thing. If there are dead bodies in your basement, check their pockets for money because they aren't going to need it.

I found a dollar once at the grocery store. I had little money back then, and I thought maybe someone else would miss that dollar as much as I would, so I turned it in to the store.

Big mistake. All they did was stuff it into the cash register and keep it.

So a couple years later when I was in the same store and found a 20 on the floor, I put it in my own pocket.

I was at a corner (in car) waiting for the light to turn green and watched a man walk out of the bank and put money into his back pocket. But he missed the pocket, the money fell to the crosswalk and he kept going. I blew my horn but he ignored it and so I got out and told him about it He was most grateful, but offered no reward, which, of course, I would not have accepted. :o) but for my kindness, the jerk in the car behind me used some pretty offensive language, Jerk.

A drive thru at a bank gave me $1000 more than the checks I cashed for vacation. I had to get back in line for 30 more minutes to give it back. But years later I found $66 dollars no one claimed and I got to spend it.
