Did You Ever Find Money and Decide To Keep It?
In Indianapolis, the back doors of a Brinks truck flew open and thousands of dollars came flying out onto the highway. According to CBS News article, it was like a movie scene! People were jumping out of their cars to try to collect the money! Of course, State Police are saying if they don't return the money, they could be charged with theft.
I would like to think that if I found the money, any money, that I would give it back. I will say, however, I remember one time when I went through the drive through at a bank and asked for $100 cash back. It was a time in my life that I had no money. It was just my son and I, after my divorce and I was working my butt off to keep the house we were in, so money was super tight. The teller handed me my envelope and I drove off. When I counted the money, I realized that she gave me $120. The 20's were new and stuck together. I remember sitting in the parking lot contemplating whether I should keep the money or not. After about 10 minutes, I drove around and gave back the $20. All I could think of was the teller who may get in trouble if she was $20 short.
I'm glad I did the right thing and so were they!
