You find $100 bill on the floor, what do you do?
A few days ago we were at a local restaurant and a man found a $100 bill on the floor in the restroom. The reactions from the staff and other patrons were very enlightning. What would you do with it?
I'm curious about your experience. But me, I think I would tell the cashier, or someone in charge at the restaurant, that I had found some cash, and if someone reported the loss and named the denomination of the bill they could call me. I would not leave it with anyone else as I would be concerned it would disappear.
If it was in a building I would hand it in to staff. If it was outside on the ground I would pick it up and take it to the nearest police station. I have done that before with a lost key, rings and a bike. The ring and the bike I got asked if I wanted after it was unclaimed after a while. The bike I took to the recycle a bike charity for them to do up and sell to someone that needed it. I would do the same for the $100...you never know it may be unclaimed after a while.
I would have picked it up, dusted it off, put it in my pocket and thanked my good fortune.
However, if it had been a larger figure, say $1000 or $10000 or more, I would have felt guilty taking the money. I think I would have left the money with the police and informed the restaurant to direct anybody claiming to be the owner to the police.
I'd put it in my pocket and stop at the beer store on the way home...
Check it for any toxins then keep it. If you lose it, it belongs to whoever finds it. Watch your stuff.
Well I would have to say that turning it in would not be the thing that you would actually feel like doing, but somehow karma always finds away of appearing out of no where.
So even if you really need the money you should still try and make the effort to give it back to the original holder.
With my luck, if I were to pocket the $100 I would probably end up losing $300 somehow.
give it to the restaurant staff or pass it to the police if you dont trust the restaurant
Keep it? It's hard to identify the true owner of the $100 bill. Unless somebody will come up to the counter and informed the manager beforehand. That's really a difficult situation to be in. I should say, finders- keepers in this story. The man can opt to give it away too.
I found a $20 once, stepped on it and waited about 5 minutes to see if anyone came looking. No one did so I took it.
I don't think there is anything wrong with it. I have found wallets and turned them in, but plain old cash with no owner should not make you feel guilty about taking it.

I was listening to two DJs on the radio. They were real clowns. One was "on the street," the other in the studio. The one on the street had a fake $100 bill which he put on the ground in front of a gas station. When people walked out, he'd ask them it the $100 bill...

Have you ever checked to see if you have missing money or unclaimed money for free with your state?We've all seen the ads but did you know you can do it for free at missing money. I just did it and found an unpaid salary check from when I moved (1998) for 65.47 and one for my father who has...
