Lets say you find a wallet with £400 in it.

do you hand it in to the authorities or do you spend it on gin?

#3 Posted by Saethir (353 posts) -

If it's in a wallet with ID or a name that can be traced, I would try to make sure it gets returned money intact.

If I find a hundred dollar bill sitting on the ground, I just made a hundred bucks.

#4 Posted by audioBusting (1462 posts) -

why would i spend £400 on gin

#5 Posted by Marz (5642 posts) -

600$ hmmm i'd take the money and leave the wallet where i found it.

#6 Edited by carlthenimrod (1586 posts) -

I would hand it in if it has ID. I would want a stranger to do the same for me.

Also, I chose D.

#7 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5797 posts) -

If the wallet has the person's ID in it then I'd try to find them and return the money. Otherwise I'd keep it. No point in leaving it.

I've turned in a wallet to a police substation with around that much cash in it.

#9 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

I would turn it in since of it was me, I would like someone to do the same.

#10 Posted by Donkeycow (556 posts) -

Though i'd be tempted to take it, if there was ID i would feel obligated to contact the person. If there was no ID then heck, my money.

#11 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Gin. Every time.

#12 Posted by ShockD (2393 posts) -

I'll take half of the money as a reward, then give it to the police.

#13 Edited by gaminghooligan (1403 posts) -

If it's near someone's stuff, yes, I turn it in. If it's under five dollars and no one is claiming it, it's all mine.

#14 Posted by Demoskinos (14520 posts) -

If its just money then its mine but if it is in a wallet then I'm going to return it because I obviously know who the owner is.

#15 Posted by TheFreepie (82 posts) -

It really depends on what kind of mood I'm in. If I'm in a devious, evil mood (80% of the time) I will most definitely steal it and feel like a badass doing so. Occasionally my moral compass works properly and I'd have to hand it in

#16 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6285 posts) -

I guess it'd depend on how much. I'm a really broke motherfucker right now.

#17 Posted by CaLe (3897 posts) -

I've found money in the street before and I kept it. I hope I find more money in the street so I can keep that too.

#18 Posted by EpicSteve (6470 posts) -

If I lost my wallet, I wouldn't even think to check the Police Station.

#19 Posted by Ducksworth (659 posts) -

If there's ID, try to return it. If not, talk to the police or something and ask them if anyone has reported lost money. If someone has lost money and that person can tell me the day the lost it and tell me what they did that day to see if where I found it sounds logical to their story, I'll give them the money. If not, I'll keep and it probably not spend it on gin.

#20 Posted by Synaptic (305 posts) -

Title made me think it was money laying on the street. Just money, take and keep. With a wallet, turn it in.

#21 Posted by endoworks (270 posts) -

I would cause I would like to hope if I lost money in the street someone would return it. Now if I had a choice between hand in the money or cannibalism I'm not sure what I would do....

#22 Posted by DeeGee (2113 posts) -

Finding a wallet is different than finding money. I'd hand in a wallet, but random notes on the street are going to be impossible to return to the right person so I might as well keep them.

#23 Posted by Animasta (14635 posts) -

if it's in a wallet? sure I guess.

if it's just free money fuck no.

#25 Posted by SlashDance (1801 posts) -

I'd return a wallet with ID even if there's money in it, as anyone should. But money just lying around I will take with no hesitation even if it's a million dollars with blood stains on it. I guess I have a chaotic good approach to this issue.

#26 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (2955 posts) -

Depends on your definition, if it was a penny stuck on some dog shit probably not.

#27 Posted by Village_Guy (2482 posts) -

Hey I ain't no thieving vermin. Unless it is smaller amounts of course.

#28 Posted by Intro (1205 posts) -

If there was an ID in it I would. I work at a movie theater which is just a haven for dropped/lost items such as money, wallets and phones. When we had Breaking Dawn Pt. 1 I found $85 on the floor. There are no cameras and no one else was there. I thought about sliding it in my shoe, but put it my pocket. Later that day a lady came back asking if anyone found it and I turned it in to her.

#29 Posted by ThePencil (390 posts) -

Hand it in. It's only money after all.

#30 Posted by Blimble (302 posts) -

Where exactly would you hand in money randomly found on the street? If it was more than £20 I'd feel bad about it but I have no idea where to hand it in. If it was a wallet I'd hand it in to a police station or something but I doubt people would go asking for money they dropped unless it was literally a wad of money

#31 Edited by NTM (7234 posts) -

It depends, but not by how much is in the wallet. I'd find it hard to believe anyone would drop their wallet and not wonder what happened to it, so if they were to remember where they dropped it, they'd probably go look for it, and if they found it with nothing in it, what does that say? It doesn't even matter, just the thought that someone would go look for it after it was lost.

I would probably try my best to find whoever dropped it around the area it was found, or I'd give it to a place that can be responsible to hold onto it. I'd have to check who's it is first since their ID might be in it. It'd feel nice to have that money, sure, but I think it'd feel even nicer to do the right thing, and that's try to return it. There was once a dollar in my yard, and I stole that, but I gave it to my parents.

This is pretty much the long and short of it.

#33 Posted by Kidavenger (3487 posts) -

I found a 50 dollar bill in an office building lobby, gave it to the security guy. A year later, the next time I was in that building the security guy stopped me and gave me the $50, nobody claimed it, I bought him lunch.

I also once found $5 along a path in a park, the only people I had passed on the path were 2 little girls obviously going to the store to buy candy or ice-cream, I looked at that $5 for awhile, decided I wasn't going to go chasing after little kids that were at least 20 minutes away now, and put it in my pocket. Felt a little bad about that one.

#34 Posted by Sayishere (1838 posts) -

I dont care, if its a wallet? done, loose money? done

I want money!

#35 Posted by Krullban (1021 posts) -

If its just money, no. It's impossible to find the real owner. So it's mine. But if I find a wallet, I'll look for the owner and post an ad on kijiji.

#36 Posted by Fredddi43 (309 posts) -

If it's straight up money, no. If it's a wallet with ID than definitely, dude props wants his wallet back. Either trace him myself if he lives close or just hand it in at the nearest police station.

I would hand that in straight away, that amount of money is far to big for me to keep myself. I would keep anything up to a £10, I say that, but there is no police station in my town, so where on earth would I have to hand it in?

I have never found any money on the ground ever though, so my mind is happy to not have to think about this.

A wallet w/ cash in it hell yeah I'm turning it in. Dick move to take the money and it makes you little better than a common thief. However if I find a lone fifty on the street that's a different tale. Obv because any mug could come and claim that money.

#39 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

If it's in a wallet, I'll turn in it. If not? Well, that's a harder decision and I'm not quite sure what I would do.

#40 Posted by pornstorestiffi (4909 posts) -

Sure i would turn it in, im not a fucking scumbag.

#41 Posted by theguy (796 posts) -

Yeah with ID give back. No ID? Mine.

what about hand in the money, cannibalism, or hot dog food?

#43 Posted by endoworks (270 posts) -

Now your on to something..... What if we had to choose between hand in the money, cannibalism, hot dog food, or cold cat food?

#44 Posted by habster3 (3595 posts) -

I'd probably turn it in (especially if it had an ID and/or credit card)

#45 Posted by nerdsbeware (223 posts) -

Yea, if it was a wallet and shit, totally turn it in.

If it's just a bill on the ground, depending on the bill, I would probably keep it. I was out for a run during the summer around 6AM and found a fiver in the street of my neighborhood. It was 6 in the morning and no one was around so I kept it. I wasn't about to start knocking on doors asking people, and I wasn't just going to leave it and let it blow away.

#46 Posted by mosespippy (3982 posts) -

I found $50 on the street once. I bought lunch and Burnout Paradise with it. It was just a pile of money though, no id or anything. I'd track it down in that situation.

#47 Posted by awesomeusername (4153 posts) -

I've found $100 before. Not in a wallet. I spent $65 of it on Battlefield 3. Worse decision ever. Not because it was a bad game though, but because it's been gathering dust 2 months after I got it.

This. Sure, I'd be tempted, but I'd feel incredibly guilty if I straight ganked someone's money.

I wonder how the British got into my Kingdom, and hope they're taking tips on how a monarchy works.

#50 Posted by Robot_Sneakers (418 posts) -

I found 100$ before and turned it in, I felt kinda good about it but it feels weird handing over money with no ID or anything. I'd do it again though because It's what I would want someone to do for me.
