Ok to preface this, I’m still out of work and barely getting by on Unemployment.
So I’m leaving my bank where I just cashed an unemployemt check and I’ve known the manager and head tellers for years and years. As soon as I get outside, I look down and see a twenty dollar bill. Then I notice three more tweny dollar bills for a total of eighty dollars lying there. I picked up the money and brought it to the bank manager telling her I just found this outside. She takes the money and says if the person who lost it doesn’t claim it within 30 days the money will be mine. I say I’m more concered that the person who lost the money would be severly hurt without it. I get home tell my father the story and he says I did the right thing but one of the employees will most likley have a friend of theirs claim it. When I tell my mother what I did, she basicly tells me I was stupid to do that and I should have kept the money.
About a half hour after this I get a call on my cell from my mother. The bank called and said the person who lost the money came back, they gave him the money and in gratitude the person who lost the money left me ten dollars.
I know I did the right thing but it would be nice to hear that from others, so please stroke my ego.
