What Would You Do?

So you've found all of the items that you want to purchase at the grocery store and you take your little hand-basket to the check-out.  However, once you're there you realize that you don't have enough cash on hand and that your check book is at home on the dining room table.  Now, if only your debit card hadn't  been swindled by someone in New Jersey last week you could actually USE your debit card however, it's been cancelled and you're waiting for a new one to be issued, hence the checkbook.

The cashier is very nice in holding your basket of food while you run across the aisle to the handy bank that's located in your store.  When you return to purchase your food you look down at the floor and see...

A one hundred dollar bill.

What do you do?

I am from the ilk of "karma" and waiting for something large to fall on me if I do something wrong so I picked it up, said to the cashier "I KNOW this didn't fall out of my wallet" and waited while she called the store manager.  The two of them quickly went out the door to see if they could find the customer who had just been in line before me. 

Ah, what I could do with that hundred dollars. 

But, it wasn't mine in the first place. And, again, I would just be waiting for something large to fall on me.  Karma is real people!

The management didn't find the customer.  Now my name is on the outside of the envelope holding the money in case the rightful owner doesn't claim it.

We'll see how this goes ;->

  2. I don't know about karma as much as it just being the golden rule. But I think a tiny little part of me is hoping that the person who dropped that doesn't miss it (because he is rich) and you can keep it! ;)
